Connected Keywords in Early Modern France

Prof Hugh Roberts, Dr Adam Horsley, Dr Helena Taylor (all Exeter),

This round table brings together three specialists in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century French literature and culture: Helena Taylor, Adam Horsley, and Hugh Roberts. We shall present a methodology of relevance to other time periods and languages, namely word history as a means of exploring contested areas of social and cultural history. We shall pay close attention to keywords that were not fully determined and that could thereby become the focus of ideological debates as various parties sought to define them for their own purposes.
