Southampton is fortunate in having a concentration of three historians all working on aspects of 20th-century France: Dr Jackie Clarke (Modern Languages), Dr Scott Soo (Modern Languages) and Dr Joan Tumblety (History).

We would be pleased to hear from prospective postgraduate students with an interest in French history. Our areas of expertise and current research themes include:

  • interwar France
  • occupied France 1940-1944
  • history and memory
  • gender issues
  • migration
  • work, consumption and domestic life
  • sport and physical culture
  • life histories/oral history

Southampton is also the current editorial base of the journal Modern and Contemporary France.
