FBTEE bibliography

The list of outputs from the FBTEE project keeps growing. It’s time perhaps to start keeping a list of article and book publications, which can be supplemented also by alongside the many podcasts and conference papers arising from the project and my introductory essay in the database itself.

Here is the list to date: a list of publications also appears in the data interface.

Simon Burrows, ‘In Search of Enlightenment: from Mapping Books to Cultural History’, Journal of Early Modern Cultural Studies special issue The Early Modern and the Digital, 13 (4), (Fall 2013), 3-28

Mark Curran,Mettons toujours Londres: enlightened Christianity and the public in pre-revolutionary francophone Europe’, French History 24 (1), (2010), 40-59. (This one combines material researched in the STN with material on d’Holbach’s work and its reception).

Mark Curran, ‘The Société typographique de Neuchâtel and networks of trade and translation in eighteenth-century francophone Europe’, in Ann Thomson, Simon Burrows and Edmond Dziembowski, eds, Cultural Transfers: France and Britain in the Long Eighteenth Century (Oxford, 2010), pp. 257-68.

Louise Seaward, ‘Censorship through Cooperation: The Société typographique de Neuchâtel (STN) and the French Government, 1769-1789’, French History 2013; doi: 10.1093/fh/crt086 – as Louise worked closely with the FBTEE team throughout her MA and PhD, it seems appropriate to list her outputs here. A further paper is due to appear in European History Quarterly shortly.

Between them these articles give a pretty good account of the project until the appearance of the project’s twin monographs Mark Curran’s Selling Enlightenment and Simon Burrows Enlightenment Bestsellers with Bloomsbury. Both should be out sometime in 2014 or early 2015.

Happy reading!!
