Brief Bio

Marc H. Lerner is assistant Professor of History. He works on comparative republicanism during the revolutionary period in 18th and 19th century Europe and is interested in questions of political culture and the transition from early modern to modern Europe. His current book project is "The Making of Political Modernity: The Case of Swiss Liberty, 1750-1850." He has also started work on a second project on "The Uses of the William Tell Story as a Republican Symbol during the Age of Revolution," which more explicitly compares republican political thought in Europe. He has presented at numerous conferences on these two projects. He received his Ph. D. from Columbia University in 2003. He joined the faculty at the University of Mississippi in 2005 after a two year post-doctoral fellowship at the Clark Library of UCLA. He teaches 100 level European history courses as well as upper level courses in Enlightenment and Revolutionary Europe as well as graduate courses in his specialty.
