)-- Author Series: French Revolution Through Parisian Woman Lens
The Hill welcomes Lindsay Parker, alumna and Ph.D. in European History, back to UCI at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 5. for a reading of her new book, "Writing the Revolution: A French Woman’s History in Letters."
Writing the Revolution is a microhistory of a middle-class Parisian woman, Rosalie Jullien, whose letters have never before been studied.
Connected to the French Revolution in very personal ways, Jullien was also distanced from the limelight because of her gender and her proclivity for modesty. Jullien’s correspondence boasts many values as an artifact of the Revolutionary experience, of women’s lives and of epistolary culture. The heart of the book focuses on Rosalie’s life in Revolutionary Paris, in the aftermath of the terror, to emphasize private, domestic life over politics.
The Hill’s Author Series is an ongoing event aimed at promoting UCI authors and other talented writers. Every event includes complimentary refreshments, a book signing and a unique opportunity to interact with the author.
