Révolution française & American Revolution
With Dr. Iris de Rode, CNRS, and Paul Cheney, University of Chicago
French-American intellectual exchanges helped to found the United States, and since the American War of Independence have served as a storehouse of ideas and inspiration for later democratic revolutions. But the profound difference between the French and American revolutions have served no less as a touchstone in debates over what kind of democracy is worthy of this Enlightenment heritage. Dr. Iris de Rode and Paul Cheney will explore these issues in context of the upcoming 250th anniversary of the American Revolution (2026) and the new academic partnership between the CNRS and The University of Chicago.
