The Center for Cultural Studies presents Jonathan Beecher
Jonathan Beecher’s current project consists of linked essays on writers who witnessed and wrote about the first months of the French revolution of 1848, some familiar, others less so. The central question: How do these writers explain the collapse of the radical dreams that inspired revolutionaries in 1848?
