Writing a People’s History of France

Wednesday, March 23, 4:30–6:00pm

Franke Institute, inside Regenstein Library

This is a workshop discussion of a precirculated article in English (and the French original for those who read French). This article explicates the approach she took in her already classic text, Les luttes et les rêves. Une histoire populaire de la France de 1685 à nos jours (2016). Struggles and Dreams was inspired by Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. This in person event will follow the usual workshop format. No knowledge of French is needed.

Please contact Leora Auslander for a copy of the paper.
