'Rod Kedward and his legacy' is a French History roundtable edited by Daniel A.Gordon, celebrating the life and work of Rod Kedward. Professor Harry Roderick Kedward (1937–2023), universally known as Rod Kedward, is best known for his groundbreaking studies of the French Resistance, discussed in diverse ways by several contributors to this roundtable. The roundtable contributions by Daniel A. Gordon, Sian Reynolds, Martin Evans, Hanna Diamond, Alya Aglan, Paula Schwartz and Chris Warne examine Rod's life and work, from his life as a soixante-huitard, via his ground-breaking works on the French Resistance, his international influence and mentorship, to the Archive of Resistance Testimony. Daniel A. Gordon's contribution, 'Introduction: Rod Kedward, soixante-huitard' (pp. 1-6) argues that Rod’s interests extended in time and space well beyond the Second World War. Indeed, to fully comprehend Rod, it is important to understand him as a soixante-huitard—close witness to many of the upheavals that marked the landscapes of les années ’68, from the Larzac Plateau to the South Downs.
