UK History professor Jeremy D. Popkin has been named the Christian Wolff Visiting Professor at the Martin Luther University in Halle, Germany, for 2013. Popkin will be in residence in Halle in June 2013 and will deliver lectures on his research on the press during the French Revolution and on the French Revolution’s debates about slavery.
“It’s a great honor to be invited to lecture at one of Germany’s most historic universities,” Popkin said.
During the 2012-2013 academic year, Popkin has been a fellow at the National Humanities Center in North Carolina. He also spent a month in Berlin as a guest scholar at the Centre Marc Bloch, a research institute in French studies attached to the Humboldt University there. Popkin’s recent publications include La Presse de la Revolution francaise (2011) and You Are All Free: The Haitian Revolution and the Abolition of Slavery (2010).
