Spring 2016 The New York Area French History Group Events

We are pleased to announce that starting this spring, the New York Area French History Group will resume meeting approximately five times per academic year.  Thanks to the sponsorship of David Troyansky, we will gather at the CUNY Graduate Center at 365 Fifth Ave. in Manhattan.

At least initially, we will pre-circulate work in progress (only to those who express interest) and another member of the group will give a brief (10 minute) comment to start the discussion rolling.

If you are interesting in getting emails about our meetings or if you’d like to volunteer to give a paper or to comment or if you’d like to be taken off the list, please email Jeff Horn (  We especially encourage graduate students or faculty who are on fellowship leave in the region to join us.


Our spring 2016 lineup is:

Thursday, 5:30 p.m. 10 March in the Thesis Room

Helena Rosenblatt, CUNY Graduate Center, “The French Origins of ‘Liberalism'”

Discussant: Jeff Horn, Manhattan College


Tuesday, 6:30 p.m., 3 May in the Thesis Room

Cliff Rosenberg, City College and CUNY Graduate Center, “The Politics of Privacy” (title tentative)

Discussant: Herrick Chapman, New York University


Let us know if you have any questions or if you’re interested in participating.  We hope to see you this spring and in years to come. Please forward to anyone you think might be interested.
