Éditer les correspondances à l’époque moderne. Faire ou défaire les réputations?

Events

May 22 2024

Ce colloque rassemble des spécialistes de la correspondance de l’époque moderne afin d’étudier les éditions de lettres entre le XVIe et le XVIIIe siècle. D’Érasme à Voltaire, la période moderne est rythmée par des projets éditoriaux dédiés à l’impression de lettres de personnalités célèbres. Le colloque souhaite donc étudier cette pratique éditoriale tout en mettant en valeur les spécificités de chaque siècle et de chaque domaine d’activité : lettres savantes, lettres diplomatiques, lettres politiques, lettres personnelles, fictives, etc.

Déboulonner les Lumières (Paris, April 25-26)

Events

February 24 2024

Déboulonnées, décapitées, vandalisées ou déplacées, les statues des Lumières sont devenues, ces dernières années, les cibles d’âpres débats mémoriels et politiques. Après avoir été elles-mêmes iconoclastes et militantes, après que ses philosophes se sont donné pour but de combattre les injustices, renverser les idoles et questionner l’ordre établi, voici que les Lumières incarnent aujourd’hui une autorité qu’on voudrait désacraliser et déconstruire. Ces journées préparatoires au dossier thématique no 57 de la revue Dix-huitième siècle rassembleront des interventions portant sur les débats interprétatifs provoqués ou ravivés par ces débats.
