ImageWebsite.jpgThe Society brings together scholars and specialists with a particular interest in France in the long seventeenth century, 1580-1740: literature, history, art, music, history of ideas and philosophy.

The Society organises an annual conference, lasting two or three days. In 2015 the conference was held at the University of St. Andrews. In recognition of the tri-centenary of Louis XIV's death, the theme was Kingship. This was a great success.

The 2017 conference will be held at Durham Castle.The theme is 'Modernity and its Discontents'.

The Society's Journal is Early Modern French Studies.


We have launched a programme of annual bursaries to support members’ research.

These awards will be known as the Amy Wygant Bursaries, in memory of our late colleague and Editor of the Society’s learned journal, originally known as Seventeenth-Century French Studies. Click here for more details.

We have made the decision to change the Society’s name, and will implement this once we receive Charity Commission approval.
