Programme C:

Experiences of modernity (17th and 18th centuries)

Our research seminar Britaix XVII-XVIII (LERMA, E.A. 853) is pleased to announce it will be exploring new avenues under a different organisation from 2016 onwards. Members of the research programme on the early modern era will explore several themes relating to their own specific areas of speciality over the next two years (2016-2018). Special projects will be conducted to question:

  •  The  concept of modernity in the works of Jonathan Swift
  •  The notion of experience in early modern relgion, and in relation with the concetpual framework of ‘lived religion’
  • The re-writing, adapting, editing and translating of early modern texts.

In addition, our early modern group will retain a seminar, which will study the ‘Languages of modernity’.
