The Society for the Study of French History is delighted to welcome Professor Mike Broers (Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford) to give the 2021 Annual Douglas Johnson Memorial Lecture, online, on Mon, 11 January 2021, 18:00 – 19:30 GMT
The paper will be entitled ‘Napoleon as European: A Certain Idea of France and Europe’.
Professor Broers is Professor of Western European History at Oxford University and the author of impressive and insightful scholarship on the Napoleonic era. Notably, The Napoleonic Empire in Italy, 1796-1814 was the winner of the Grand Prix Napoléon Prize, 2006, and both volumes of his biography, Napoleon, represent landmark treatments of this extraordinary life.
The 2021 Annual Douglas Johnson Memorial Lecture will be the 11th in this series, organised by the Society for the Study of French History and the Association for the Study of Modern and Contemporary France. It will be the first to be held online, due to the current situation around the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tickets to this online event are free, though need to be booked in advance. The event will be hosted as a live lecture with the space for discussion afterwards, though a recording will also be made for subsequent viewing and hosted on the SSFH website.
