La peste et la propagande napoléonienne

Plague, Politics, and Napoleonic Propaganda c. 1800


Apr 29, 2020 4:00 - 4:45 pm

In 1799, plague broke out in the French army during its invasion and occupation of Egypt and Syria under the leadership of General Napoleon Bonaparte. Bonaparte’s reaction to the contagion, and the representations of the disease he commissioned after his return to France, imbricate politics, medicine, and morality in complex ways and suggest interesting comparisons with contemporary debates about governmental responses to COVID-19. This lecture will be presented by David O'Brien, Professor of Art History.

This lecture will take place on Zoom:
