The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a $175,000 grant to Brandeis University to organize a year-long seminar that will bring together faculty and graduate students from Brandeis and other schools in the Boston area to consider the entangled histories and enduring effects of the American (1776-1783), French (1789-1799) and Haitian (1791-1804) revolutions. The seminar was conceived and will be led by two members of the Brandeis faculty, Jane Kamensky, the Harry S. Truman Professor of American Civilization, and Susan S. Lanser, Professor of Comparative Literature, English, and Women’s and Gender Studies.
