History out of Time: Louis Lafitte's Republican Calendar. 

Take a look at the List Center’s exhibitions from a new perspective. Join Elizabeth Saari Browne of the History, Theory, and Criticism of Architecture and Art department at MIT to discover more about Allison Katz: Diary w/o Dates. The talk will focus on the French Republican Calendar that was used from 1793-1806, considering how, in addition to restructuring time, it was conceived to reimagine history.

About the Speaker:
Elizabeth Saari Browne is a PhD student in the History, Theory, and Criticism of Architecture and Art program at MIT. Her dissertation explores the traces of eighteenth-century embodied aesthetics in the objects, practices, and discourse of French nineteenth-century clay sculpture. Prior to beginning her graduate studies at MIT, Browne held positions at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
