This network was funded from March 2014 to March 2016.
This network aimed to provide a much-needed interdisciplinary forum for the many 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.
We held a series of lunchtime seminars in 2016-2017 on correspondents from philosopher David Hume to fairy-tale writer Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont.
