Technologies of Enlightenment

Re-examination of the Enlightenment through its cultural, literary and technological revolutions. To recover an understanding of these transformations, we will use our new digital databases of eighteenth-century works to sample a wide variety of lesser known or forgotten texts. Whether these works became outdated, whether they were censored or whether they were just too weird, we will combine them with canonical readings from the period to recover the importance of socio-technological revolution to the Enlightenment.
