Joshua H. Cole, Professor of History at the University of Michigan, compared the role of political provocation in interwar French Algeria and contemporary France in his February 19 lecture for the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies. His talk, "Exit, Voice, and Provocation: Menace and Vulnerability in Interwar French Algeria," continued the Institute's 2013-15 theme, "Materials of History." The talk is available online as an MP3 audio file to University of Michigan account holders (link here to access).
This talk was made possible by a generous contribution from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg.
