A week on from the Paris Attacks

In the week since the attacks in Paris there have been several articles published by historians that both set the violence in context and analyse the response to it.

I recommend reading:

Dr Caroline Campbell (University of North Dakota), ‘A postcard from Paris’, http://ndquarterly.org/2015/11/19/a-postcard-from-paris-rejecting-the-idea-of-civilizational-crisis-after-the-attacks-of-november-13/

Prof Mark Humphries (Swansea University), ‘The Paris attacks and the abuse of history’, http://gorffennol.swansea.ac.uk/?p=454

Dr Gavin Murray-Miller (Cardiff University), ‘The Paris attacks and France’s Republican tradition’, http://www.historytoday.com/gavin-murray-miller/paris-attacks-and-france%E2%80%99s-republican-tradition
