Professor Martin Hurcombe



Year 1

I lecture on and teach  'Shaping France', which is a mandatory unit for all first-year students of French. The idea behind this unit is to give students a grounding in the principal ideas and some of the key events that have all contributed or in some way challenged French national identity (such as the Hundred Years War, the Wars of Religion, the Revolution of 1789, the creation of the Third Republic, the loss of empire and the emergence of French multiculturalism).

Year 2

I have co-taught 'The Third Republic: France 1870-1940', which examines key events and ideas from this era, over a number fo years. The unit is being replaced in 2019 with 'France in Ferment'.

Year 4:

I convene and teach Political Cultures of Early Twentieth-Century France, which studies everything from developments in radical politics and feminism to the politics of the Tour de France.

Consultation Hours (2018-19): Wednesday 9.30-11.30am, 1.66, 19 Woodland Rd.
