Italian Placement Testing on 01/12 in HRH 2.106B @ 3:00pm

French Guest Lecturer Christy Pichichero

Fri, February 1, 2008 | HRH 2.118

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

What happens when you combine army reform with moral philosophy, natural law theories, and socially egalitarian ideologies of the Parisian salon milieu? Military Enlightenment! This talk explores a little known egalitarian movement in literature and military thought of the mid-eighteenth century that aimed to democratize heroism and its rewards to all men of the French army. A study based upon archival documents, this talk reveals the French army to have been one of the most liberal-thinking institutions of the Bourbon absolute monarchy at the twilight of the Old Regime.
