About the Author

Itay Lotem is a Lecturer in French Studies at the University of Westminster, UK. He has published in academic journals like Modern and Contemporary France, French Politics, Culture and Society and French History in addition to appearances in the media.


“Itay Lotem’s rich and conceptually informed study … in which colonialism and slavery have been remembered publicly in France and Great Britain is an important contribution to a better understanding of the general patterns and particularities of the surge in colonial memories across Europe. … By the sheer wealth of information and insights he provides, Lotem proves himself to be an invaluable guide … that will continue to demand the attention of societies and states in Europe and beyond.” (Jan C. Jansen, German Historical Institute London Bulletin, Vol. 45 (2), November, 2023)
“The book is engagingly written, and is notable in its ambition, scope, and breadth of research undertaken.  … The Memory of Colonialism makes several important and timely interventions in the study of historical remembrance and postcolonial identity. … His book will surely become a cornerstone of the growing scholarship on colonial memory, and deserves to be widely read.” (M. Kathryn Edwards, Social History, April 7, 2022)
