TORCH Enlightenment Correspondences Network inaugural meeting

The new TORCH Enlightenment Correspondences Network will be holding its first meeting on Monday, 24 February (Sixth Week), from 12.30 to 2 pm, at Ertegun House (37A St. Giles’). This network aims to provide a much-needed interdisciplinary forum for the many students and scholars across Oxford working on Enlightenment correspondences to discuss their research; explore methodologies for reading and publishing letters from the long eighteenth century, including digitised correspondence; and draw on Oxford’s many resources for such studies. For more information, please visit our website,

At our first meeting, in addition to getting acquainted and discussing the network’s aims and future plans, we will be hearing about current epistolary work by members Pamela Clemit, Isabel Matthews-Schlinzig, Andrew Kahn, and Kelsey Rubin-Detlev, and discussing some recent surveys of work on Enlightenment letters.

If you would like to join in, please RSVP as soon as possible to [email protected] so that we can send you copies of the readings and get a sense of numbers for the free sandwich lunch to be provided at the meeting.
