Maintenance of Order Operations: Legacies of the Algerian war for French Families Professor Raphaelle Branche, University of Rouen
The Institute for the Study of War and Strategy (ISWS) presents this lecture by Professor of modern and contemporary history at the University of Rouen, Raphaëlle Branche, who has been extensively working on colonial violence, focusing on French Algeria.
In her work, she examines the issues of illegal violence such as rape, torture and summary executions, mainly from the point of view of the perpetrators. She has also addressed more specifically the issue of prisoners during the French-Algerian war (1954 to 1962) and acts of violence committed by the Algerian civilians and combatants during the war of independence and during the 1871 uprising.
Her current research is studying the French soldiers’ narratives on their war experience and the impact of these narratives on their families.
