James Martel: “A Revolution No One Believed In: The Haitian Subversion of the Ideals of the French Revolution”
October 17, 2012 @ 12:15 pm - 2:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Through a study of the Haitian Revolution, James Martel’s recent work not only questions the liberal universalism of the French Revolution, but also the myriad of ways in which Haitians appropriated, subverted, and radicalized Enlightenment principles.
James Martel is Professor and Chair of Political Science at San Francisco State University.
