Just completing a thesis entitled 'La France de la BBC, 1938-1944'

Abstract:  The purpose of this research project is to examine the BBC’s picture of Franco-British relations in Britain and abroad from the Munich crisis in September 1938 to the Liberation of Paris in August 1944. Although the thesis is informed by a keen interest in the relationship between the BBC and governmental authorities, the abundance of hitherto unexamined archival materials has prompted the decision to focus on the BBC’s presentation of France and Franco-British relations. The thesis analyses the shaping of BBC policy towards France, the influence of the British government upon BBC policy, and the representation in its programmes of relations between France and Britain. Through the examination of the BBC’s presentation of France and Franco-British relations between 1938 and 1944, some light is also shed on the British government's policy towards France during the period.

Brett's research addresses the links between ideology and cinema during the 1930s and 1940s. An initial interest in Marcel Pagnol’s rural melodramas during the Popular Front years led him to investigate the political uses of non-fiction film under the Occupation. In addition to evaluate the impact of newsreels and documentaries on public opinion, he has used film production and distribution history to highlight the dynamic of conflict and compromise that lay below the surface of Franco-German state collaboration, especially from 1940 to 1942.

Herrick is a European historian specializing in the social, economic and political history of twentieth-century France. His first book, on the French aircraft industry in the 1930s and 1940s, examined the internal social dynamics of a politically turbulent industry during the Popular Front, the war and occupation, and the challenges of postwar recovery during the early Cold War. He is now writing a book on the social and economic reconstruction of France after the Second World War with a focus on why elites and a variety of social groups came to regard state authority in new ways during the Fourth Republic. This project develops comparisons across several areas of public policy--industrial renewal, family policy, social security, immigration, and the regulation of the retail trade--where state intervention took new forms and provoked important debate. As part of this project he has published essays on the history of the French welfare state, on national identity and the postwar modernization of France, and on the Liberation of 1944 as a moment in state making. He also has an abiding interesting in comparative history, especially in work that examines France in a broader European and trans-Atlantic perspective. He is the Editor of French Politics, Culture & Society, an interdisciplinary journal sponsored by NYU’s Institute of French Studies and Harvard’s Minda de Gunzburg Center for European History.

Sean's research is concerned with the rise of authoritarian nationalism in France in the 1930s and 1940s, specifically the Croix de Feu, which was the largest of several extreme right-wing movements active during the interwar years. He is also working on the role of intellectuals -- specifically of André Siegfried -- in articulating concepts of French national identity in the twentieth century. He has published an article on the Croix de Feu and aviation in French Historical Studies, and another article in French History. He has completed book reviews for H-France (H-Net Reviews), The Canadian Journal of History, Social History, Histoire Sociale/Social History, and Left History. He has also presented papers at conferences in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States, including the "Peace in Our Time? The End of the Second World War and the Beginning of the Cold War" Conference (Ottawa, 1996), the "World War Two: A Dual Perspective" Conference (Loudonville, NY, 1996), the "Politics and Culture in the French Third Republic" Conference (Ann Arbor, MI., 1997), the annual conference of the Society for the Study of French History (Sheffield, UK, 2000), and the 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001 meetings of the Society for French Historical Studies (Ottawa, Washington, DC, Scottsdale, AZ., and Chapel Hill, NC).

Working on an ongoing research project examining the ideology of the Vichy government (1940-44). The study focuses on the ideas of radical right-wing intellectuals, including the Action française, both concerning what was wrong with existing French society and their proposals for political, social and economic change under the rubric of the National Revolution. In particular, the study uses newspapers, journals, and novels written by the radical right to explore the range and language of socio-cultural criticism. The aim here is to expose relationships and contrasts among varying sections of the Vichy-era Right but also to show the continuities and discontinuities with prewar beliefs.

Currently completing a dissertation which focuses on the film music and criticism of Georges Auric from 1919 to 1946. Each chapter centres around a period of a few years and a particular collaboration (with Marc Allégret, René Clair, Jean Cocteau, and Jean Delannoy) with discussions of aesthetics, film and film music practices, and the place of films and collaborators in the larger political-historical milieu of the 1930s and 1940s. Of particular interest for Vichy scholars will be the chapter dealing with Auric's films in the late 1930s, which will include discussions of the films "Entrée des artistes", "Gribouille", and "La Vie d'un homme".


At the time, Auric, a staunch leftist, was the music critic for both "Marianne" and "Paris-Soir". His music and the films on which he collaborated reflect many of the ideals upheld by the Popular Front, particularly the aesthetic that Richard Abel has described as "social realism". The following chapter turns to the years of the Occupation.


Beginning with a review of Debussy's "Pelléas et Mélisande" in the "Nouvelle Revue Française" (December 1940), Auric's musical nationalism began to take on a very new flavour. While he had always identified himself as anti-German and pro-French, his definition of musical "Frenchness" changed following the Invasion. The films he chose to collaborate on during this period (such as "L'Eternel Retour", "Le Bossu", and "François Villon") also contain clearly nationalistic undertones--hardly surprising since the director of all three, Jean Delannoy, was involved with the Resistance group Comité de Libération du Cinéma. Auric, too, was involved with the Resistance, belonging to the Front National de la Musique (a wing of the Front National de la Libération) and writing for the clandestine journal "Musiciens d'Aujourd'hui".

The shaving of women's heads at the Liberation. Relations between enemy troops and the indigenous population. 
(résumé of Fabrice's thesis): Head-shaving of women accused of collaboration in France 1943-1946. 
From 1943 to 1946, head-shaving was widely employed against women accused of collaboration with the German occupying forces. Thanks to varied and complementary sources - files from purge committees and courts of justice, minutes of the police forces, reports by prefects, photographs, documentaries, the underground press and the Liberation press - the reality of that punitive violence is far better known nowadays. Nearly 20000 women of all ages and with all sorts of occupations were shaved all over France behind closed doors or in public. Head-shaving proved to be so varied that it prevents a univocal explanation. It is one of the most patent demonstrations of purge. Research on shaving reveals how extra legal and legal purges are interwoven. As purge reflects the will of a majority of the population to take part in the traitors' punishment, it must also be observed as a social phenomenon. The local environment in which shaving took place establishes a constant relation between the individual and the group and illustrates the individual's adherence process to a local or national community. Finally, as it is specifically prejudicial to womanhood, head-shaving is a sexualized form of violence. It raises the problem of the relations between sexes and of the (re)construction of female and male identities at the close of war and at the very moment when French women were granted citizenship.
