Alice Main


Biography

My work focuses on the French Revolution, particularly Thermidorian political culture. I am interested in the role of gender and sexuality in negotiating the reconstitution of French society after the Terror. I also write about representations of the Revolution in nineteenth-century Academic art and art institutions.
