Dr Madeline Woker
I am a historian of modern France, French colonialism and taxation. My research interests lie at the intersection of the history of empires and colonialism, the history of economic life and political history. I am currently writing a book about the politics of taxation and inequality in the French colonial empire between 1900 and the 1950s. I also write for a larger audience about the history of international taxation and the afterlives of empire and colonialism.
I obtained my PhD from Columbia University in 2020. I also hold an MPhil in Modern European History from the University of Cambridge and a dual MA degree in European affairs from LSE and Sciences Po. I previously taught at Columbia and Brown.
