Wednesday, Oct. 2nd: Joshua Cole Book Discussion

Welcome back to another semester with the European History Workshop!  Please join us on Wednesday, October 2nd 2019, from 6-8pm in 1014 Tisch Hall for a discussion with Professor Joshua Cole of his new book:

Lethal Provocation: The Constantine Murders and the Politics of French Algeria

As described by Cornell University Press, “Part murder mystery, part social history of political violence, Lethal Provocation is a forensic examination of the deadliest peacetime episode of anti-Jewish violence in modern French history. Joshua Cole reconstructs the 1934 riots in Constantine, Algeria, in which tensions between Muslims and Jews were aggravated by right-wing extremists, resulting in the deaths of twenty-eight people.”

Food and drinks will be provided.
