18th Century Seminar: The Senses and Performance in the Enlightenment - 46857 - FREN 532 - 01
Tuesdays, 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm Dr. Pascale LaFountain
This course will center on the evolving relationships among the five senses, materialist philosophy, literary drama, and the public sphere in 18th-century French culture. It is impossible to separate the advancement of the Enlightenment project from developments in 18th-century theories of the senses and public performance. Under consideration will be questions of mind/body duality, the formalization of body language on stage, the centrality of blindness/sight metaphors to Enlightenment theory, bodily metaphors used in literature, and links between 18th-century thought and cognitive science today. Readings will include dramatic, scientific, theoretical, and philosophical works by Condillac, la Mettrie, Voltaire, Montesquieu, Rousseau, Diderot, Beaumarchais, Sainte-Albine, Riccoboni, Noverre, and others.

Students will hone these skills through the development of an independent research project defined by their own scholarly interests. Through workshops and discussion, participants in the class will have produced a substantive essay formatted for further development as a conference paper and/or article submission to a professional journal.
