DIGITal ENcyclopedia of European Sociability

Project description

Digital mapping of British and continental models of sociability

Why is the eighteenth century so crucial for the understanding of our current forms and practices of sociability? What role did it play in the emergence and circulation of models of sociability in Britain and on the continent at a time where the idea of nation was in the making? The EU-funded DIGITENS project will answer this question. It will establish an innovative framework for understanding the formation of European forms of sociability in the long eighteenth century (1650–1850). The project will create the first open-access digital encyclopaedia of sociability that will benefit researchers and everyone interested in eighteenth-century social and cultural history. The solution relies on a high-level interdisciplinary network and intersectoral collaboration between academic and non-academic partners.
