HIST 2860

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2016-2017. Courses of Study 2017-2018 is scheduled to publish mid-June.

In the turbulent and violent years from 1789 to 1815, France experienced virtually every form of government known to the modern world. This course explores the rapidly changing political landscape of this extraordinary period as well as the evolution of Revolutionary culture (the arts, theater, songs, fashion, the cult of the guillotine, attitudes towards gender and race). Whenever possible, we will use texts and images produced by the Revolutionaries themselves.

When Offered Fall.
