The History Department of Indiana University is pleased to announce a conference in memory of our esteemed colleague William B. Cohen, who died tragically November 25, 2002. Bill made path-breaking contributions on French imperial history, colonial encounters, and the development of modern cities, as well as writing on the Holocaust, the legacy of Charles De Gaulle, and philanthropy. At the time of his death he was working on a significant project on the conflict between official memory and popular opinion of the Algerian War.
The conference program reflects Billís interests and his influence on students. Topics include French ideology and nationalism, memory, colonialism and imperialism. The full program may be viewed on the conference web-site at http://www.indiana.edu/~histweb/cohen_conference/.
