A collection of Paris Commune-related & Commune-spirited events taking place in various sites during the period of the free school — this page is updated weekly!


La Commune 2021 Presents: COMMUNE-OPÉDIE

The COMMUNE-OPÉDIE is an extension of the La Commune 2021 Free School. It features thematic pages on different aspects of the Paris Commune and its legacies written by students in an SFU seminar taught this past spring by History professor and Free School host Roxanne Panchasi (Simon Fraser University). Stacey Bishop, a PhD Candidate in History at the University of Michigan provided vital editorial and website development assistance.

Each student in the 13-week seminar on the Paris Commune completed a page focused on a specific theme, some of which lined up with the free school. After researching their chosen topics, students wrote up a brief overview/introduction and an analysis of a source “from the archive.”
