The Society for Early Modern French Studies brings together scholars and specialists with a particular interest in France in the early modern period, from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries. It is interdisciplinary in scope, covering literature, history, art, music, history of ideas, theology, and philosophy.
Following a virtual meeting of the Executive Committee, we have decided to cancel our 2020 conference in Exeter. Our collective safety must be paramount. The Executive also decided to transfer the conference theme, ‘Public and Private’, along with our slate of speakers, to next year’s venue: King’s College London, 8-10 September 2021.
The Society’s Journal is Early Modern French Studies, which has two issues a year.
We have launched a programme of annual bursaries to support members’ research. These awards are known as the Amy Wygant Bursaries, in memory of our late colleague and Editor of the Society’s learned journal.
