Age of Revolutions:
Laurine Manac’h (EHESS), “French Merchants in Buenos Aires (1816-1825): Economic Opportunities and Difficulties during the Wars of Independence” – in English and French
Welcome to a new year of the Age of Revolutions E-Seminar, organized by Nathan Perl-Rosenthal and Clément Thibaud and sponsored by the University of Southern California’s Early Modern Studies Institute and the Ecole des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales. We began this meeting last year, as a way to foster intellectual community among scholars of the revolutionary Atlantic world, and are continuing it this year to build on the momentum and exciting exchanges we had last year. Our theme this year, loosely defined, is political economy and revolution. The year’s seminar will culminate with an in-person meeting in Los Angeles in May 2022. Stay tuned for details.
This year, we have planned seminars in several languages. Certain seminars are being given in English, French, or Spanish. As always, comments are welcomed in any of these languages and Portuguese.
Register here to be added to the list for receiving announcements and pre-circulated materials for all Age of Revolutions e-seminar meetings in 2021-2022.
