WHAT: "Colonies of Humanity? Violence and Humanitarianism in the Modern French Empire"

WHO: Professor J.P. Daughton, Stanford University

Professor Daughton is a historian of modern Europe and European imperialism with a particular interest in political, cultural, and social history. His first book, An Empire Divided: Religion, Republicanism, and the Making of French Colonialism, 1880-1914, examines how conflict between religious missionaries and a host of anticlerical critics defined French colonial policies and "civilizing" ideologies in the empire, especially in Indochina, Madagascar, and Polynesia. He is currently working on a second book that considers how Europeans understood and responded to instances of violence and humanitarian crises caused or exacerbated by colonialism.

WHEN: Monday, May 13, 2013 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

WHERE: UC San Diego Social Sciences Building, Room 107
