Translation and History

Angela Kershaw presented a paper on the translation of Joseph Kessel's Second World War novel L'Armée des ombres/Army of Shadows at a conference at the University of London Institute in Paris - Beyond De Gaulle and Beyond London: New Approaches to the History of the Free French and the External Resistance (4 June 2016).

The conference, organised by Charlotte Faucher (Queen Mary, University of London) and Laure Humbert (University of Manchester), discussed the new approaches that historians have taken to the analysis of the French external resistance. Summing up the conference, Professor Julian Jackson highlighted the importance of the transmission, communication and translation of information about the French resistance to the wider world during the Second World War.
