New Voices Talk Series | 28.07 | 5 PM | Susana Seguin | Émilie du Châtelet and clandestine literature

You are warmly invited to the fourth presentation in the Summer 2022 series of New Voices talks (focused on Du Châtelet). Susana Seguin will present “Émilie Du Châtelet and clandestine literature.” This online talk will be hosted on Zoom on Thursday the 28th of July at 5PM CET.

Susana Seguin is a Senior Lecturer in the department of French Literature at the University of Montpellier, and researcher at the ENS of Lyon. She is interested in the 18th century French literature, clandestine literature, philosophy, philosophy of science,  Fontenelle, Voltaire and du Châtelet.

Abstract of the talk: Although Émilie Du Châtelet’s philosophical and scientific works are now well known to scholars, her place in the world of philosophical clandestinity still raises many questions. This presentation will review the Examens de la Bible in the context of the clandestine philosophical manuscripts and present the digital edition project of this work currently under preparation.

I hope many of you will be able to join us for an interesting talk and a friendly and engaged discussion!  If you have registered for the New Voices talk series previously, you do not need to register again. If you haven’t registered before and need a Zoom link, please register here:
