Paul Friedland


Professor, History

Paul Friedland is a historian of France, specializing in the Revolutionary period, but is broadly interested in European culture, politics, and ideas over the span of the long 18th century and in the interplay of ideas and culture between the metropole and the Caribbean colonies. His research and writing have been supported by fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, and by visiting fellowships from the Davis Center for Historical Studies (Princeton University) and the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton).
