  • Archival Lessons from the French Revolution by Max Fuld
  • Hello there, It's right down the hall to the left 
  • Excuse Me? Where can I find the Claiming Authority Archive?
  • I didn't know where to start so I browsed around the exhibit
  •  I couldn't believe all the influential documents they had
  • The exhibit was split up based on a word of reference 
  • I liked how it was split up because all the documents connected to that one word
  • I saw two girls from class and wanted to know that they thought about it
  • How do you like the exhibit so far?
  • I enjoyed the "aunthentic" section
  • You should take a look at the "Blue Silence" piece
  • I made my way over to the "Blue Silence" Piece
  • Hmm? What does that description say?
  • This reminded me of how books during the French Revolution were burned and never accessible again 
  • The books during the French Revolution were silenced as well
  • This is a very authentic piece but obviously can't be used. It is more of a piece of art with a backstory
  • This is similar to when the laws between 1789 and 1793 abolished most titles minorities
  • I kept looking around the exhibit and found the "absence" section very interesting and reletable
  • This idea of absence reminded me of how the minorities reacted. They wanted to destroy the symbols of the old regime in order to demonstrate their hate of that government and what they kept from them 
  • The word privation sticks out as well. That's how the old regime government was operating
  • The "representative" section was the last section I looked through 
  • Panitch also quotes "It is the fate of memory in an historically-oriented age to be distilled into 'lieux de memoire' (sites of memory); the places, objects, and rituals which a society designates as links to th past and as emblematic of its current identity 
  • When thinking of representation, Panitch mentions, " 'History is a representation of the past' which attempts to analyze, totalize, and make sense of it"
  • Work Cited: Panitch, Judith M. "Liberty, Equality, Posterity?: Some Archival Lessons from the Case of the French Revolution.". Vol. 59.
