In this demonstration, participants will take on the roles of historical figures at a critical point during the French Revolution.
Reacting to the Past is a series of role-playing games for the college classroom, in which students take on the personae of historical figures during critical points in history. In this session we will play an abbreviated version of one of these games--Rousseau, Burke, and Revolution in France, 1791-2, in order to demonstrate how they engage students in the subject matter.
