Gregory Brown (History) has published an article documenting the first academic lectures on the French Enlightenment and French Revolution delivered in the United States, by Andrew Dickson White, between 1859 and 1861. White, an active abolitionist, worked with prominent French legal historian Edouard René de Laboulaye to build support for the Union cause and the abolition of slavery in France and the United States during the Civil War, and he considered the history of the French Revolution an important topic for understanding the challenges a heterogenous society faced in founding and advancing democracy. The essay, based on archival research primarily conducted online during the pandemic, has been published by Age of Revolutions, a peer-reviewed, online journal of scholarship on the history of revolutions in the Atlantic World from the 18th century onwards.
