Herrick Chapman, Associate Professor of History and French Studies, Department of History & Institute of French Studies, New York University

“Europe’s future lies in the hands of French voters this May.  How did the history of France and Europe bring us to this moment?  After Brexit, a wave of terrorist attacks, and the rise of nationalist populism, how well equipped are the French to tackle the challenges they face at home and on the continent?”
