scholarly Debate Essay:
1. Read the following secondary sources:
Robert Finlay, “The Refashioning of Martin Guerre,” American Historical
Review 93, no. 3 (June 1988): 553-571
Natalie Zemon Davis, “On the Lame,” American Historical Review 93, no. 3
(June 1988): 572-603
2. Write a short essay (600-900 words) in which you assess this scholarly exchange.
On what grounds does Finlay critique Davis’s book The Return of Martin
Guerre? How does Davis respond to these criticisms in her article? Based on
your reading of The Return of Martin Guerre, is Finlay’s critique on target?
why/why not? Does Davis successfully parry Finlay’s critique? Who in your view gets the better of the exchange?
3. Be sure to provide footnotes whenever drawing from the two articles or Davis’s book.
4. Pitch your essay to an imaginary reader unfamiliar with The Return of Martin
Guerre and the exchange. Be sure to present briefly the context.
5. Please use Chicago style with footnotes.
