[Tribe ‘Oui Oui’ was the local name for the French in New Zealand]

In July 2020 the first ever Joint George Rudé Seminar and the Society for French Historical Studies Conference will be held in Auckland hosted by the Universities of Auckland and Massey.  Co-presidents Tracy Adams (French) and Kirsty Carpenter, and Treasurer Joe Zizek invite colleagues in History and the Humanities to engage with the themes and the visitors that the conference will bring to New Zealand.  Leading scholars from the US, UK and Europe will be keynote guests, and many American and international colleagues have already signalled their intention to attend.

The conference invites panels and papers on any aspect of French History, Medieval to Contemporary.  Areas of traditional French historical research will be featured alongside themes in: Citizenship in the Medieval and Early Modern European world; the Revolutionary period and its environmental impact in the wider Atlantic world; and changing approaches to French or Franco-British History in the NZ/Australasian and Pacific region – in what the French call Océanie.

Any questions can be addressed to the members of the Organising Committee.  The call for papers will commence in February and close on 1 October 2019.  Information on registration and hotels will appear on this site in due course.
