[Project Discussion] Samuel Hayat

Monday, March 27th at 5:00pm

Samuel Hayat is a Research Associate Professor (Chargé de recherche) at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). During his stay at the Camargo Foundation, he intends to complete a book about the history of labor ideas in France in the 19th century. Following his work on political representation during the revolution of 1848 in France, he investigates the labour origins of the Democratic and Social Republic, a distinctive republican ideology embedded in the nascent French working-class. Following the methods of a social history of ideas, he will try to document the genesis, circulation and reception of ideas and practices concerning citizenship and representation among organized workers.

In his presentation, Samuel will present an overview of his project.
