Join us for a book talk with Dr. Emily Marker

Black France, White Europe illuminates the deeply entangled history of European integration and African decolonization. Emily Marker maps the horizons of belonging in postwar France as leaders contemplated the inclusion of France’s old African empire in the new Europe-in-the-making. Marker examines these processes through the lens of youth, amid a surprising array of youth and education initiatives to stimulate imperial renewal and European integration from the ground up. She explores how education reforms and programs promoting solidarity between French and African youth collided with transnational efforts to make young people in Western Europe feel more European.

Emily Marker is an Assistant Professor of European and Global History at Rutgers-Camden. She is a member of the Graduate History Faculty at Rutgers-New Brunswick, the Camden representative on the Executive Committee of Rutgers’ Center for African Studies, and the Vice-President of the Western Society for French History.
