Les Historiennes Spring events will focus on the first three decades of the Third Republic. Fortuitously, art historian Chris Boicos of Paris Art Studies, in collaboration with faculty of the University of Southern California (USC), offers two series of lectures focused on nearly the same period (1870-1895)! For all registrations prior to Jan 18th, a portion of the registration fee will go to AAWE!
Lectures, via Zoom, are on Wednesdays at 5 pm, starting on Jan 27, examining politics, society, literature, and art of the era. The cost is 17€ per lecture, or 60€ for the full series (15€ each). If you register by Sun Jan 17, 6€ per lecture or 16€ per series will go to AAWE. On Jan 18, Chris will announce the series to his mailing list, and no further registration fees will go to AAWE.
