This course takes the French Revolution as its point of departure, tracing the ways by which it might be seen as crossing borders, as informing, or as being restaged in new ways in ensuing contexts and periods. We will explore the Haitian Revolution, the Revolutions of 1830 and 1848, the Paris Commune, and the Algerian War of Independence. Class is taught in English and meets once a week for 1h30.
