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 move our 2021 conference, originally scheduled to take place at King’s College London 8-10 September, to an online format. Our collective safety must be paramount. Please check back for details of the revised programme, which will be publicised when complete.
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.
