Reign of Terror: The French Revolution in 1792–1794

Thursday, September 21st 12:30 – 14:30 (EST)

Join us for a fascinating two-hour journey into the depths of the Reign of Terror, the most dramatic and violent episode in the French Revolution. Your guide will be Professor Colin Jones, a specialist in the French Revolution and author of a recently-published study of the overthrow of Robespierre and the end of the Terror. This event will take us beyond the ubiquitous images of the Revolutionary Tribunal and the guillotine to analyse the causes, the character and the consequences of the Terror.

Get ready to dive into a thought-provoking discussion that will leave you with a new perspective on the French Revolution, the role of Robespierre, and the lessons that can be gleaned for modern politics and society.

The webinar will include a 10-minute break and two Q&A sessions. Participants will receive a handout and will also have the chance to submit a question in advance.

Participants will also qualify for a 30% discount on Professor Colin Jones’ new book The Fall of Robespierre: 24 Hours in Revolutionary Paris.
