Obscenity in Renaissance France

This AHRC-funded network ran from 2007-09 and brought together 30 researchers from the UK, France, USA, Switzerland and the Netherlands to study the notion of obscenity in Renaissance France.

This website provides a record of the people, events and publications involved.

Collaborative research by participants in the network is continuing with current projects, including Gossip and Nonsense: Excessive Language in Renaissance France and French Libertine Verse (c.1600-1622): A Pilot Project for Editing the "Recueils satyriques".
