Welcome back and best wishes for a good second term!
For this week please read (for the two articles, after you click below follow the link to JSTOR):
- A. L. Conklin, ‘Colonialism and human rights, a contradiction in terms? The case of France and West Africa, 1875-1914,’ American Historical Review 103 (1998).

Next week I am going to give you the opportunity to discuss essays. Please come to seminar with any questions you have about any element relating to the writing of MMW papers. This is in response to requests you made in the seminar feedback, so please make the most of it!
