TLRH | Republishing Hitler: On the French critical edition of Mein Kampf
Monday, 7 February 2022, 1 – 2pm
A public lecture by Florent Brayard , Professor at History at the École des hautes études sciences social organised by Dr Daniel Geary, TCD in association with Trinity Long Room Hub and in conjunction with TRISS and with the Faculty of Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities.
In 2016, seventy years after Hitler's death, Mein Kampf entered the public domain: anyone can now offer their own edition. This also means that it is finally possible to publish this fundamental source for the history of the 20th century in the form of a critical edition. This is what the Franco-German scientific team led by Florent Brayard has worked on for several years. Brayard, Professor at History at the École des hautes études sciences social, will present the different challenges, scientific, technical, and political, of this very unique editorial enterprise. John Horne, Emeritus Professor of History at Trinity, will offer a comment on Prof Brayard's presentation.
