Description

In the spring of 1418 the Burgundian faction in the French civil war took Paris from the control of the Armagnac faction, which had controlled the city for the previous five years. Because the Burgundians were allied with England, and the then-dauphin Charles (later crowned Charles VII and the eventual victor of the Hundred Years War) was allied with the Armagnac faction, many scholars have come to view this conflict in partisan terms, as a massacre followed by an occupation. This session of papers seeks to understand the complexity of this episode in the French civil war and the larger external war into which it was subsumed, both on the part of those who experienced it, and on the part of those who later conferred meaning upon it. The session of papers will seek to situate the events of 1418 with respect to broader issues related to violence exercised within a community, the figure of the witness, the burden of survival, and the experience of exile.
