New Seminar Series: A Global History of the Present Time

Have you ever reflected upon the possibility of a chronology of recent history which is decentred from that of Europe and North America? Excitingly, we are doing just that! Our new seminar series: A Global History of the Present Time is a joint seminar series organised by the University of Portsmouth Francophone Africa Research Group, Institut d’histoire du temps présent, Paris (IHTP-CNRS) and EUME Forum Transregionale Studien, Berlin.

For our launch seminar  taking place on Wednesday 29 January, Portsmouth’s own Dr Olivia Rutazibwa will be joined by Dr Reem Abou El Fadl from SOAS to encourage us to think about whether the end of the 1970s should be considered the end of an era.
