What, when & where
Applications are now being accepted for the first annual Franco-American Summer School on the History of Early Modern France, which will be held at Princeton University from July 14 to July 21, 2019.
The Summer School aims to bring together roughly ten graduate students from North American and French universities working in the area of early modern French history (1500-1800) for an intensive week of reading and discussion, under the direction of David Bell (Princeton), Rafe Blaufarb (Florida State), and Clyde Plumauzille (Sorbonne-CNRS). Students will spend the week discussing both classic and recent works on the period, and examining key notions such as “Enlightenment,” “revolution” and “modernity.” Students will also have the chance to present their own research. While students from all years of doctoral programs are welcome, we especially encourage applications from first, second and third year students. While students will be expected to apply to their home universities for support, the Summer School will cover all expenses (lodging, food, domestic travel for North American participants, international travel for French participants) that the home universities cannot. Housing will be available at the university.
Deadline & how to apply
Candidates should submit a one-page statement of interest and a current c.v. to firstname.lastname@example.org. They should also ask their advisor to send a letter of recommendation to the same e-mail address. The deadline for application is February 15, 2019.
Other info, Links & conditions
Participants will receive a packet of readings during the spring, and will be expected to have completed these readings by the start of the Summer School. Applicants should be currently enrolled in doctoral programs in early modern French history, and should have fluent reading ability in both French and English.
