Study Day: The World of the French Novel, 1800-1820

On Monday, June 18th 2018, together with Maison Française d’Oxford, we present an international study day themed Le Monde du roman français, 1800-1820 / The World of the French Novel, 1800-1820. This conference is co-organised by Dr Chanel de Halleux, Dr Jonathan Hensher, and Professor Catriona Seth of the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages, Oxford.

The French nineteenth-century novel was the genre that transformed multilingual European literature, and Le Monde du roman français, 1800-1820 will allow one to learn about the origins of that phenomenon.

This study day will feature talks in both French and English, with the researchers arriving from across Britain and France, but also Belgium and New Zealand. The subjects are diverse and include the works of particular authors of the period (Mme de Genlis, Pigault-Lebrun, or Germaine de Staël — to name a few) as well as over-reaching themes, such as the Romantic, the Gothic, and the Feminine.

The event is open to all interested parties; booking fee of £10 is required. A number of the presentations will be in English, with the rest conducted in French. For further details about the event, please, follow this link.
