Neo-republicanism in contemporary France. Interview with Emile Chabal

Ed Naylor interviewed Emile Chabal on the occasion of the launch of his book, A Divided Republic. In this interview, Emile Chabal discusses the concept of neo-republicanism as a renewed and emerging version of the 19th century republicanism used in the 1980s. He also offers an analysis of postcolonial politics in France as opposed to postcolonialism in the Anglo-American world. Dr Emile Chabal is a Chancellor’s Fellow in History at the University of Edinburgh. His research focuses on the transformation of French politics since the 1970s, Franco-British relations in the 20th century and the legacy of postcolonialism in France. In addition to French studies, his next research project will be the intellectual biography of Eric Hobsbawm. Dr Ed Naylor is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University of Portsmouth. His research engages with history of immigration on France, with a special focus on Marseille.
