Professor Helen Graham

Professor Helen GrahamHelen Graham  is Professor of Modern European History at Royal Holloway, University of London and was in 2010 Visiting Chair in Spanish Culture and Civilisation at the King Juan Carlos Centre, New York University.

Her The Spanish Civil War: A Very Short Introduction in the Oxford University Press trade series has sold over 50,000 copies in English, has been translated into German, Spanish, Portuguese and Greek and is available as an audio book.  She has just published The War and its Shadow: Spain’s Civil War in Europe’s Long Twentieth Century (Cañada Blanch Centre/Sussex Academic Press, 2012) and is currently working on a set of interlocking biographies of Europe’s dark mid-twentieth century called Lives at the Limit.  She is the historical advisor on the documentary film, The Silence of Others which has recently won major funding from the US National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and which tackles the ‘crimes of the powerful’: in this case a set of institutional abuses that long outlived the Franco dictatorship in Spain, most notably in the form of child trafficking.  

On 14 March 2013 she will  take part in an LSE Works debate with Paul Preston and Royal Holloway’s Dan Stone and Daniel Beer, entitled ‘Franco’s Terror in a European Context: The Volksgemeinschaft That Got Away’.
