Eighteenth-Century Studies

Our group fosters interdisciplinary exchange between faculty and graduate students working in the long eighteenth century.

Our main objective is to foster interdisciplinary exchange between faculty and graduate students working in the long eighteenth century. The group meets monthly to discuss works of eighteenth-century moral philosophy, social history, political economy, poetry, fiction, and literary and art criticism. We host talks by distinguished scholars from within and without the UC system and, beginning in Fall 2011, will offer a forum for graduate students from UC Berkeley to present their work in progress.

Francophone Studies Working Group

An interdisciplinary conversation on topics in Francophone Studies.

The primary aim of the Francophone Studies Working Group (FSWG) is to foster interdisciplinary conversation on topics arising from the French colonial empire and its aftermath in contemporary France and the postcolonial world. We bring together graduate students and faculty from French, Comparative Literature, and History; our meetings are also of potential interest to scholars working in other national literatures and in departments such as Anthropology, Ethnic Studies, Political Science, Rhetoric, Linguistics, Film and Media, and Sociology.
