Annonce

The Newberry Library Center for Renaissance Studies announces "REVOLUTION AND CHANGING IDENTITIES IN FRANCE, 1787-1799," a 5-week summer seminar (2 July - 3 August 2001) directed by Jeremy Popkin on identity transformation and the revolutionary process.

The concept of identity transformation is an innovative and
multi-disciplinary approach that offers a way of understanding, not only
the French Revolution, but revolutionary movements in general. Common
seminar readings (in English) will focus on the French Revolution, but the
conceptual framework of the seminar is relevant to other revolutionary
episodes and to cultural issues in a wide variety of contexts. Applicants
whose interests would add a comparative or interdisciplinary viewpoint to
the discussions are welcome. Issues the seminar will address include
processes of collective identity transformation, the development of
revolutionary and counter-revolutionary identities, changes in gender roles
and religious identification in revolutionary contexts, and the tensions
caused by conflicting identities. Seminar participants will be able to draw
on the Newberry Library's extraordinary collection of French Revolutionary
pamphlets, as well as its rich holdings of Revolutionary newspapers and of
materials related to the early modern period throughout Europe and the
Atlantic world. The seminar is open to faculty in undergraduate teaching
institutions in disciplines such as history, literature, philosophy,
political thought, and art history, to librarians with instructional
responsibilities at undergraduate teaching institutions, to qualified
independent scholars, and to scholars employed at museusm, libraries, and
historical societies. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or foreign nationals
who have been residing in the U.S. for at least three years. Reading
knowledge of French is NOT required.

The seminar is supported by a major grant from the National Endowment for
the Humanities. Participants who have been accepted into the seminar will
receive a stipend of $3,250 to help cover living and travel expenses.

THE DEADLINE IS 1 MARCH 2001
