Enlightenment Correspondences: A Two-Day Workshop

26-27 June 2015

The Ertegun House, 37A St. Giles’, Oxford

Letter-writing was a major mode of knowledge exchange, literary creation and personal expression in the Age of Enlightenment. This two-day interdisciplinary workshop brings together leading specialists in the area, who will explore major themes and correspondence practices including the pragmatics and practices of epistolarity; the cultural, institutional, and philosophical practices and discourses of the Republic of Letters; affective relations in eighteenth-century correspondences; academic debates; political and intellectual networks; and digital editing.
