He lectured in French Studies at the University of Birmingham before becoming Director of Research at the University of London Institute in Paris (ULIP).[3] Dr Kitson left ULIP in April 2011 and became a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Historical Research.[4] Kitson is currently an Associate Professor of French Studies at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.[5] He is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society[6] and a fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.[7] He is also known for the web resource on Vichy France that he set up [8] and for being the founder of the Facebook group 'Simon KItson's France: News and DIscussion'.[9] He is British Correspondent of the French history journal Vingtième Siècle.[10] and is on the editorial board of the Journal of War and Culture Studies.[11]
