A proposal for a transnational network to explore the history of revolutions from the eighteenth century to the present day.
As part of the work of the newly-established French Revolution Network, we would like to invite scholars of other revolutionary events and movements of the eighteenth to twenty-first centuries to consider engaging with us for future activities, including workshops, conferences, and potential collaborative research proposals.
The general themes and research questions we have outlined to date are indicated at , though these remain open-ended and subject to discussion. We anticipate that most activities of the network will engage with selected and prioritised topics within and around this general list.
We place at the core of this project the idea of genuinely comparative historical perspectives, but in so doing we are also eager to engage with the insights that a full range of humanities and social-science disciplines can give on such transhistorical and transnational phenomena.
Potential participants can respond directly in comments to the webpage above, and/or by email to David Andress.
