Conference/book signing of ‘La Bataille des Ardennes’ by Pr G. Piketty

Dear Students,
The DLS Team has the pleasure of inviting you to our next conference with Pr. Guillaume Piketty on Wednesday, 20 November at 18:30 in the Big lecture room . This distinguished professor will present his new book, ‘La Bataille des Ardennes’ (Tallandier, 2013). Conference will be followed by a book signing.

Guillaume Piketty is a Research Professor at the Centre for History at Sciences Po. His research focuses on the social and cultural history of WWII in France and in Europe, and, more broadly, on war, resistance and society during the 20th century. He works on the day-to-day experience of the European exiles during the Second World War. Viewed through the prism of combatant exile, his study is primarily based on the analysis of personal writings and memories written by exiles and of the testimonies that many of them have left.

NB: The conference will be held in French.

We hope to see you all next Wednesday! Please do not hesitate to contact any member of the DLS Team (Catherine, Ilona, Luca, Sara, Marwan, Minnie, Eric, and Matthieu) with questions, or check out our website and facebook page:
