Date: Tuesday 26 November 2013
Time: 6-8pm (followed by dinner and drinks)
Venue: 2.02 (Dreyfus Room), 28 Russell Square

We are very pleased to invite all Birkbeck history PhD students to the second – and last – Research Student Seminar of this term, which takes place on Tuesday 26 November.

We have invited Dr Ludivine Broch – who is on a sabbatical from her Early Career Fellowship at the Pears Institute for the study of Antisemitism to spend a year as a  Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence – to give the talk, which has the title ‘Stealing, Drinking and Cracking Jokes: Tactics of Ordinary Workers in Second World War France’.

The talk is is based on a chapter from Dr Broch’s soon-to-be-published book on railway men in France during the Second World War, Ordinary Workers, Vichy and the Holocaust: French Railwaymen and the Second World War (Cambridge University Press, 2014).

The seminar takes place in room 2.02 (the Dreyfus Room) in 28 Russell Square (the history department building) and will be followed by drinks and dinner at a local pub, so please let Emma ( or Janet ( know if you’re planning on joining us there – we’ll book a table.
