The project team will be participating in a roundtable discussion about the duchess on Monday 2 November at 5.30-7.00pm UK time. The event is titled ‘The French Revolutionary Terror from the Margins: The Letters of the duchesse d’Elbeuf‘. This is part of the online Modern French History seminar series at the Institute of Historical Research (University of London).
We will be joined by Dr Richard Taws (UCL), co-curator of an ongoing exhibition at UCL Art Gallery which featured the duchess, ‘Witnessing Terror: French Revolutionary Prints, 1792-4’ (see the blog post from 18 February 2020 for further details on this). The session will be chaired by Dr Sanja Perovic (KCL).
To attend the roundtable you must book here via the IHR website. Members can also currently book an appointment to visit the exhibition during UCL Wednesdays. Please register your interest at UCL Art Museum’s booking site. Despite the notice non-UCL visitors are permitted. Contact the Curator Andrea Fredericksen at firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
