This proposed panel for the 2008 INCS conference, “The Mind Is Its Own
Place: Enclosure and Travel in Jacobin Fiction” identifies a peculiar

French Revolution, such scenes most obviously comment on the storming of
the Bastille, or the Revolution’s promise of liberté. This panel
interrogates the legacy of the French Revolution in the long nineteenth
century: how do authors imagine happiness (or misery) in the context of the
