Seminar on Lally-Tolendal and French Counter-Revolutionary Ideology

The History seminar will take place today, Wednesday, 11 March, 4.30pm in Lipman 033. The speaker is Dr Ultán Gillen (Teesside University), a leading authority on the French Revolution,
Ireland and Stalin. The title of Dr Gillen's paper is "Lally-Tolendal and French Counter-Revolutionary Ideology."

From the Teesside University School of Arts and Media website:

Ultán’s research interests centre on the French Revolution and its international impact as part of the broader age of revolution in Europe and the Atlantic world. His current research project focuses on counter-revolution in comparative context in the age of the French Revolution and Napoleon, with a particular focus on counter-revolutionaries in France, Britain and Ireland.

Other research interests include the Enlightenment, public opinion and political culture in eighteenth-century Ireland, and the history of political thought. He has published on aspects of political and intellectual life during the age of revolution, including on French and Irish republicanism in the 1790s, the Enlightenment and political culture, and on public opinion, on political clubs, and on counter-revolutionary conceptions of history.
