Biography

Keith Rathbone (Ph.D., Northwestern University, 2015) researches twentieth century French social and cultural history. His manuscript, entitled A Nation in Play: Physical Culture, the State, and Society during France's Dark Years, 1932-1948, examines physical education and sports in order to better understand civic life under the dual authoritarian systems of the German Occupation and the Vichy Regime. In investigating physical culture, he addresses historiographic issues such as the continuity between the Third Republic and the Vichy Regime, the gendered ideology of Vichy sports programs, and the development of collaboration and resistance.

Keith arrives at Macquarie University after previous positions as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Nicholas D. Chabraja Center for Historical Studies at Northwestern University and as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of History at the College of Wooster.  He has also lectured at the Sciences politiques de Paris and Indiana University Northwest.
