Martine A. C. Marchal - ePortfolio

Welcome to the ePortfolio of Martine A. C. Marchal.

I am a PhD student in the History Department at the University of Warwick. I began this research in 2006, after completing a BA in English at the University of Aberystwyth and doing my M.St. in Women's Studies at the University of Oxford. My masters thesis 'The heroic innocence of Sophie Scholl and the White Rose: Representing resistance to Nazism in post-war Germany' focused on the books, newspaper articles and feature films about the White Rose from the German post-war period to explore the main traits and trends of the reception history, with an emphasis on the iconization of the members of this resistance group.

I am in the third year of research on my PhD topic. I was away from University in 2007/2008 to do archival research in France, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg.

I am also teaching in the History Department this year, on the first year core module Making of the Modern World.

If you have a particular interest in me, my work and my plans, you are welcome to contact me for more information at

My supervisor is Dr Gerd-Rainer Horn.


Research topic:

A transnational study of the resistance to Nazi rule in Luxembourg and its bordering countries (the 'Grande Région'), 1922-1950.


I am funded by Luxembourg's Ministère de la Culture, de l'Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche.
