Date and Time: 
Monday, December 4, 2017. 04:30 PM - 06:00 PM
Meeting Location: 
Building 200, Room 107
Workshop: 
History of Political Thought
Meeting Description: 

Biliana Kassabova's paper aims to make sense of the revolutionary ideas and actions of Louis-Auguste Blanqui. It intends to complicate our ideas of political thought regarding revolution in the nineteenth century, by arguing that the binary of centralized versus popular revolution needs to be revised. It is part of a larger project on concepts of revolutionary leadership in France from the French Revolution of 1789 until the Paris Commune of 1871. Within this historical trajectory, Blanqui is an interpreter of 18th century ideas into 19th century contexts, a political thinker and actor who plays a key role in the various reformulations of the revolutionary tradition.

Biliana Kassabova is a lecturer within the Stanford Department of French.
