Hannah Callaway

Hannah Callaway is a Lecturer on Social Studies. She received her B.A. from Carleton College in 2004, Master’s degrees from the Université Paris-Sorbonne in 2006 and 2007, and her Ph.D. from Harvard in 2015, along with a doctorat from the Université Paris 1 through a Cotutelle Internationale de thèse, all in History. In 2010-11 she was a Fulbright fellow in Paris. Her research interests include the emergence of democratic property as a set of practices in revolutionary France, with particular emphasis on the interactions between law, administrators, and social actors. She is revising her dissertation, “Revolutionizing Property: The Confiscation of Émigré Wealth and the Problem of Property in the French Revolution,” into a book manuscript. She is also beginning work on a second project, studying the phenomenon one might characterize as the “capitalist family” that emerged in French culture and politics in the nineteenth century and served as the nexus for a particular mixture of moral values and economic competition that characterize capitalist culture.
