The Alfred Deakin Research Institute and The Faculty of Arts and Education of Deakin University are honoured to be hosts for the 19th George Rudé Seminar in French History and Civilisation, which will be held at the Geelong Waterfront Campus between 10 and 12 July 2014.

Established in 1978 to honour George Rudé's contributions to the study of French history in Australasia, the George Rudé Seminar is a biennial conference that brings together specialists in French history and culture from Australia, New Zealand and around the world.

Our program reflects the diversity of French history, culture, and society from the medieval to the contemporary periods.

Since 2005, a peer-reviewed selection of papers for each seminar has been published on-line through H-France.
The 2014 Seminar is organised with the collaboration of three Melbourne universities: the University of Melbourne, Monash University, and Latrobe University. We are pleased to welcome Pamela Pilbeam, Jean-Yves Mollier, John Merriman, Philippe Minard, Timothy Tackett, Marissa Linton, and Simon Kitson.

The Seminar will be followed by a special one-day public seminar commemorating the centenary of the start of the First World War. This seminar, France 1914, will be held in the State Library of Victoria, Melbourne, on 15 July 2014.
