課程簡介

This course will focus on the history of France, from the late-eighteenth century until the early nineteenth century. Though a relatively short time-span, the events of this era were of crucial importance in determining the future trajectories not only of France, but of all of Europe and, to a lesser though still significant extent, the entire world. Though the course will span the period from the “Old Regime” (France before 1789) until 1815, the bulk of the course will focus on the period from 1789 through 1794.

課程大綱

The following are the readings for the semester. “Baker” refers to Keith Michael Baker, ed. The Old Regime and the French Revolution, a primary source reader. All other texts listed will be available on-line, either directly (as a .pdf) or as a link (often via JSTOR.org)

*Note that some more readings will be added, and that every week – or almost every week – will have at least some readings, though the reading load as a whole will be reasonable.
