Excellent material and there is a wealth of it. I wish this were a 2 session experience given Ms. Dessaillien had to speak so quickly- happy to pay for 2 classes- this information is to valuable to skip through it.
Illuminating talk from a stellar presenter. Marie's talks always leave me hungry for more
Really great and informative introduction to the situation in France leading up to the events of the Revolution. Not just "gossip" about the royal family, but an examination of the philosophical ideas that we're gaining traction in that time, plus the political situation and then added on with the environmental issues- you really could understand what led to it all. Very well delivered!!
I have been a student of French history for over 20 years, but in this 90 minute program with Marie Dessaillen, I learned more about the french point of view than I'd learned studying from an US perspective. Definitely a must see!
A jampacked discussion. The instructor was obviously knows a lot about this topic but I feel that she crammed way too much info into 1 hour 15 min. Plus she talked a mile a minute. I would be still digesting one topic and she would be already be on the next one.
