This international conference will be hosted in Oxford, UK, by the Maison Française, 9-11 July 2015. This conference seeks to explore what was considered vile across early modern culture in France (c.1500-1700). Our aim is to assess the extent to which individuals and objects might be grouped within different categories of vileness but also to trouble these very classifications as analytical constructs. Of particular interest are the circumstances in which vileness is said to occur – and cease. The conference will bring together a new grouping of 19 scholars, from graduate students to established researchers. Registration is open. For more information, see the conference website.
