Personal profile

Helen Graham has worked at the University of Southampton, New York University and Royal Holloway University of London where her current teaching includes a graduate course on the European civil wars of 1917-47. Her archival research has focused on the Spanish civil war  and 'uncivil peace' of the 1940s, seen as central to that broader continental social and political conflict. Her books include The Spanish Republic at War (Cambridge U.P., 2003) and The Spanish Civil War. A Very Short Introduction (Oxford U.P., 2005), this latter a wide-ranging ethical reflection on the war and its long aftermath.  She is currently researching a book about Franco’s prisons and another which explores the reverberations of Republican defeat internationally through a series of interlocking biographical essays. In 1995 she edited (with Jo Labanyi) the Oxford University Press volume Spanish Cultural Studies.) See Helen Graham's blog at
