Title : Cultural transfers in the long 18th century

Description :
Cultural transfers in the long 18th century is the mouthpiece of an Anglo-French academic network which seeks to coordinate scholarly discussion and research on little-investigated but crucial factors in the development of thinking during the Enlightenment. Cooperation between British, French and other academics is initiated by colloquia, online tools, the publication of collective works, and promised databases of research resources. Founded in 2006, this interdisciplinary project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Agence Nationale de la Recherche. The researchers affiliated with this project examine how Enlightenment ideas were transmitted as much as they scrutinize the ideas themselves. Their focus spans the late 17th to the early 19th centuries and views the Enlightenment as a "result of exchanges, interactions and movements of people, goods and texts across national, linguistic and cultural frontiers." This site lists calls for papers and paper abstracts from recent and upcoming affiliated workshops. Names and research interests of project participants are also posted, as is the project newsletter.
