The common topic of the presentations will be the perception and the assessment of subversion in Early Modern French Texts: How does subversion work? How can we know that a discourse is subversive? What kind of decision do we make when claiming that a text is subversive? Which critical tools are available to make these judgments?

Lectures will be conducted in English.
