This is to announce a workshop at Waddesdon Manor in conjunction with the exhibition Glorious Years: French Calendars from Louis XIV to the Revolution. The workshop will explore themes around the production and consumption of French 17th-and 18th-century almanacs (book and print formats), while also looking at the broader context of the history of Time and its depiction during this period. Our distinguished speakers are drawn from across disciplines.
