Prof. Julian Swann, ‘Despotism, Public Opinion and the Crisis of the Absolute Monarchy’, 6.30 pm, Thursday 24 June, Malet St, Room B35, followed by our end of year party in B04
Julian Swann is an expert on old regime France and has published widely on subjects such as the parlement of Burgundy, power and provincial politics, and the nobility. He is currently working on a history of political disgrace in early modern France. This promises to be a really memorable end to our 2009-10 programme of lectures! Afterwards, we are having a party to celebrate the end of the academic year in room B04. There is no charge to attend either event, and all are welcome.
