University Centre Shrewsbury talk takes timely look at French politics

In the light of the recent victory for Emmanuel Macron in the race for the French presidency, a talk at 1pm on Wednesday May 17 will explore key political debates that have put France in the global spotlight.

In ‘From Battlefield to Burkini: A Journey into Franco-African History’, Professor Claire Griffiths will invite the audience to travel back through four centuries of French history in Africa to examine the roots of France’s role in today’s world.

The talk begins at 1pm at University Centre Shrewsbury’s Rowley’s House. To book a place, contact [email protected] or call 01743 297554.
