This event should be of use to anyone with an interest in Voltaire, in his correspondence, and in the problems and pleasures of editing letter anthologies. – Prof. Nicholas Cronk is not only an expert but also a very entertaining speaker. If you happen to be in Oxford on 6 November (or have time to come up), make sure you join us (and don’t forget to register by 31 October with firstname.lastname@example.org).

We will be holding our first Network meeting of Michaelmas Term over our usual free lunch on Thursday, 6 November, from 12.30-2 pm, at Ertegun House (37A St Giles’, Oxford). Nicholas Cronk will be speaking about ‘Making an Anthology of Voltaire’s Letters: The Problems and the Pleasures’. We hope that a broad discussion of the possibilities and pitfalls of anthologising letters will ensue, so please come ready to share your reflections on reading and making such collections.
