Leaving Home: Familiarity and Distance in the Writing of History
A talk by Dr. Leslie Moch, Professor Emerita, Michigan State University
Professor Moch is a historian of European migration. She has trained as a historian of France, has written on France and Western Europe, and is now exploring the history of migration in Russia. From this last venture came Broad Is My Native Land: Repertoires and Regimes of Migration in Russia’s Twentieth Century, coauthored with Lewis Siegelbaum (Cornell U.P., 2014) – a follow-up to The Pariahs of Yesterday: Breton Migrants in Paris (Duke U.P., 2012) and Moving Europeans: Migration in Western Europe since 1650 (Indiana U.P., 2003).
