The French Revolution: Politics, Violence, and Polarization
October 25 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm
In collaboration with Sandhills Community College, Pinehurst
Featuring Lloyd Kramer, Professor of History and Director, Carolina Public Humanities; Maximilian Owre, Teaching Assistant Professor of History and Executive Director, Carolina Public Humanities; and Rachel Schaevitz, Postdoctoral Fellow in the Public Humanities, Carolina Public Humanities
Political polarizations divide Left- and Right-wing groups in all modern democratic societies, but similar emotion-charged political conflicts were already present during and after France’s great Revolution of 1789. Join us to explore how modern political polarization emerged in Revolutionary France and how the Revolution’s legacy still appears today. A panel discussion with all three scholars will follow after lunch and lectures.
Cost: $25, includes lunch.
