Ce que la littérature fait à l’histoire, et inversement

Mar 3, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

UCLA Department of French & Francophone Studies Quarterly Research & Professional Development Colloquium: “Ce que la littérature fait à l’histoire, et inversement”

A seminar by Professor Patrick Boucheron (Collège de France) on the (complex) relations between literature and history with Laure Murat (French & Francophone Studies; Director of Center for European and Russian Studies)

Patrick Boucheron holds a Chair in Medieval History (Histoire des pouvoirs en Europe occidentale, XIIIe-XVIe siècle) at the Collège de France. A leading public intellectual, Prof. Boucheron is one of France’s most prominent and gifted historians of comparative and connected history. His research has impacted urban history, historic sociology of the visual arts, and epistemology of history, with publications such as L’histoire du monde au XVe siècle (2009), Faire profession d’historien (2010), and Conjurer la peur. Sienne 1338: Essai sur la force politique des images (2013, rééd. 2015). His 2008 book, Léonard et Machiavel, was a speculative but rigorous attempt at articulating a new writing of history, engaging directly with the practice of uses and reappropriations of history.
