About Lia Paradis

I'm a professor of Modern Europe at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania. My book, Imperial Culture and the Sudan, was published by IB Tauris in 2020 and I spoke with Charles Prior about it on NBN last year. I also co-write, produce, and host a partner podcast of the NBN called Lies Agreed Upon. It looks at how Hollywood uses history to talk about today. My current book project, Drama Queens: Monarchs, Aristocrats and Hollywood is also located at the intersection of film and history. I'm interested in talking to authors on a broad range of subjects that span Britain and Empire, Modern Europe, popular culture and, quite frankly, any other subject I wish I knew more about.

Lia Paradis is Professor of History at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. She is the co-host of the Lies Agreed Upon podcast and author of Imperial Culture and the Sudan: Authorship, Identity and the British Empire (IB Tauris, 2020)
