Laurence Prempain

Laurence Prempain is a French historian, specialised in Polish and Polish Jewish immigration in France during the interwar period and World War II (LARHRA, University Lyon 2). Through an analytical framework based on gender and microhistory, her research focuses on avoidance and transgressions strategies that men and women developed to face discrimination, exclusion and deportation. Her affiliation to the CCFEF (Centre of French Civilisation and French Studies, Warsaw) supports her work on Holocaust in a synergistic European approach. A first cooperation with the Centre of Nordic Studies (CENS, Helsinki) broadened the scope of her interests to circus people through projects Diverging fates: Travelling Circus people during National Socialism and Forgotten cosmopolitans. Post-doctoral researcher in the BESTROM project, she explores strategies of French Roma circus families, in terms of integration, societal security as well as Resistance during WWII.
