In recognition of the 200th anniversary of Napoleon’s final defeat at Waterloo, Lloyd Kramer and Maximilian Owre will interpret Napoleon’s life and career, drawing on their expertise in French history to connect Napoleon’s actions to wider patterns in modern political, military, and cultural history. This two-part seminar will examine the emergence of the Napoleonic imperial regime after the French Revolution of 1789, and ponder the enduring legacy of Napoleonic warfare, and Napoleon’s diverse influences on European culture.
