I am studying the relationships between literature and bookselling by examining the legal protection of Early Modern printed items (16th-17th c., with a perspective oriented towards the 18th c. as well): privileges, approvals and permissions to print. This work led to several publications, including two monographs and a few articles.
I am currently working on “privileges for female booksellers in Early Modern France (16th-17th c.)” (“Le privilège de librairie au féminin dans la France d’Ancien Régime”) as a part of the call for project GIS Institut du genre 2018-2028.
Using “masculine” privilege as a point of comparison, the objective of this project is to reevaluate women as holders of bookselling privileges, whether in a role as intellectual or material producers. The project also aims to expose an unedited corpus and to examine problems specific to women’s privileges.
