  1. Hi there
    Please tell us more about the person(s) behind this blog. It looks as if it might get interesting here!
    Thanx
    Maria (a feminist student).

    • Dear Maria,
      We are a group of professors from a variety of universities world-wide who are all working on the literature written during or shortly after the French Revolution (1789-1794). This website is an avant-coureur of a book in the works which will collect in English all of our writings (and others) and present to the Anglophone world a concise snapshot of the best works from this little-known corpus. The “best” works hold great interest for political history, the origins of nationalism, feminist thought, and English-French relations. Thanks for your interest!
      Julia Douthwaite, editor
