HIST 031. France in Algeria, France and Algerians, 1830-present

What do the existentialist Albert Camus and the soccer star Zinédine Zidane have in common? The intertwined histories of Algeria (Camus' birthplace) and France (Zidane's). This course examines that history, from the 1830 invasion to the War of Independence to today. We will ask how the settler population, of whom Camus is just an example, emerged and analyze debates about citizenship represented by Zidane and other offspring of Algerian migrants. Throughout, we will interrogate the history of French empire.
