Ph.D Student

Hannah Morand is a Ph.D. student in the Department of History at Yale. For her MA thesis at the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, University of Toronto, she studied the symbolic, social and temporal overlap between the eighteen-century style of architecture referred to as Revolutionary Architecture and the French Revolution. Particular attention was given to Claude Nicolas Ledoux’s pre-Revolutionary vision for an ideal industrial city in Franche Comté. This interest has led to her current focus on the Royal patronage given to manufactures and commercial companies in the late Ancien régime. Her research has been supported by the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.

Fields of Interest: 
Early Modern Europe; French Ancien régime; History of design and technology; History of political thought; Industrial History
