The Institute on Napoleon and the French Revolution, in Florida State University’s Department of History, hosted a two-day workshop on economic practices in Revolutionary France. Early-career scholars from Europe and North America presented their cutting-edge research in this rising field of French Revolutionary historical study.

The conference participants discussed a range of subjects from public and commercial debt, public works projects, and the economics of prostitution in Revolutionary Paris.  Furthermore, each of these papers was commented upon by a renown historian with Florida State’s very own Rafe Blaufarb, John Shovlin of New York University, John Garrigus of the University of Texas, Arlington, and Clare Crowston of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Each presentation was followed by a round table discussion linking the specific paper topic to broader theoretical and historiographical issues.

Presenters: Hannah Callaway, Harvard University; Elizabeth Cross, Harvard University; Katie Jarvis, Baylor University; Tyson Leuchter, University of Chicago; Marguerite Martin, Université Panthéon-Sorbonne / Ecole normale supérieure; Katherine McDonough, Stanford University; Clyde Plumauzille, Université Panthéon-Sorbonne / Ecole normale supérieure; Erika Vause, Florida Southern College.
