2010 Alumna Katie Jarvis Publishes Book on Revolutionary France

01/04/2019

 

Katie Jarvis is an assistant professor of History at the University of Notre Dame. She was a Fulbright Doctoral Student in France in the 2010-2011 academic year. During her fellowship, she conducted archival research for her dissertation. She has now published a book based on this research: Politics in the Marketplace: Work, Gender, and Citizenship in Revolutionary France (Oxford University Press, 2019). It integrates politics, economics, and gender to ask how Parisian market women invented notions of citizenship through everyday trade during the French Revolution. While analyzing how the Dames des Halles and marketplace actors shaped nascent democracy and capitalism, this book challenges the interpretation that revolutionary citizenship was inherently masculine from the outset.
