  1. My main areas of interest regarding the Revolution are friendship and Freemasonry in the Revolution, both in colonial and metropolitan France. I would be very interested in joining your network.

  2. Very excited to see this blog. It really can help scholarship in many, many ways. In fact, I’m writing at the moment to ask for recommendations of any new books or articles on non-state violence (particularly communitarian) for an essay that I’m writing on violence during the Revolution.
    Also I’d like to call your attention to another blog, complementary to this one, that focuses on issues in present revolutions that historical scholarship can enlighten. The difference between the French Revolution Network and this blog is that the reference group includes revolutions around the world. Please see: http://hnn.us/blogs/revolutionary_moments.html

  3. Excellent idea and a great format for this kind of collective blog. (Thanks to Katie Jarvis for suggesting this particular platform.) My main areas of interest are the Reign of Terror, revolutionary violence, transitional justice, memory, and the historiography of the Revolution.

  4. Delighted to learn of this resource. Main areas of interest are Haiti/French empire and legal history. I have been developing my own little website over the past month on a related theme (lawandrevolution.com) and have it cross-linked to yours. Looking forward to potential exchanges and to the development of this network.

  5. I am primarily interested in the years between 1788 and 1796, and the Jacobin/Girondin networks/disagreements. My new book, “Surviving the French Revolution: A Bridge Across Time” (Lexington Books, 2013) focuses on survival strategies of various groups: monarchists, emigres, political leaders, Girondin fugitives, and writers/artists, between 1792 and 1795.

  6. Dear All,
    I am delighted to see that interest in Maximilien Robespierre continues unabated. A new generation has been reconsidering Robespierre’s life and political contribution. Gavin Jacobson, a DPhil student at Balliol College, Oxford, and a contributor to this network, has reviewed two collections that bring together much of the new thinking on Robespierre. The review is coming out in English Historical Review. The link to it is here:

    best wishes,
    Marisa
