Eric Hazan and Kristin Ross

A conversation between Eric Hazan, author of A People's History of the French Revolution (Verso, 2014), and Kristin Ross, author of Communal Luxury: The Political Imaginary of the Paris Commune (Verso, 2015). Hazan and Ross will discuss the contemporary resonance of two key moments in French revolutionary history that each aspired, in different ways, to reach beyond France to become world historical.

Kristin Ross is Professor of Comparative Literature at NYU. Her previous books include May '68 and its Afterlives and Fast Cars, Clean Bodies: Decolonization and the Reordering of French Culture.  Eric Hazan is the founder of the publisher La Fabrique and the author of several books, including Notes on the Occupation and the highly acclaimed The Invention of Paris.
