Thanks to the pioneering scholarship produced after the bicentenary of the French Revolution and the ending of the Cold War in the 1990s, the critical categories of gender, class, race and sexuality are firmly entrenched in the study of the period. But in a post-9/11 world, scholars within the field find themselves at a crossroads between these established methodological approaches and a shifting political landscape. This conference seeks to understand how contemporary political exigencies impact the social, psychoanalytic and gender-based scholarship that took as its principal object of inquiry the artistic production of Post-Revolutionary France (1789-1852).
Academics and postgraduate students are invited to submit abstracts of no more than 300 words, for 20 minutes presentations, together with a CV, to firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome proposals for papers that are unpublished and have not been previously presented.
