Hannah Callaway studies the seizure of property in Paris during the French Revolution. Her dissertation draws on a variety of archival sources, including a series of dossiers documenting the process of seizure itself, to reveal the complex ways that property functioned within French society, politics, and economics. Her research reveals how the Jacobins' understanding of property was articulated over the course of the Revolution, revealing fault lines of contestation that would endure in the foundations of the Republic. Recovering this story of property changes our understanding of the property-driven political conflicts of the nineteenth century. Those conflicts were not simply about labor and capital, but raised questions about the nature of social bonds and the relationship between citizen and state. Callaway received a B.A. from Carleton College and a Maîtrise and Master from the Université Paris-Sorbonne. She has been a Fulbright Fellow and has held an SSRC International Dissertation Research Fellowship.
