Voltaire Lab

The Voltaire Lab is a new initiative by the Voltaire Foundation to investigate the future of Voltaire scholarship, and Enlightenment studies more generally, in the digital age. In a spirit of experimentation and exploration, we aim to bring together scholars and students working in the broad field of digital humanities to consider the wide-ranging implications of the emerging 'Digital Enlightenment' as a new object of study.

Who We Are

The Voltaire Foundation is a world leader for eighteenth-century scholarship, publishing the definitive edition of the Complete Works of Voltaire (Œuvres complètes de Voltaire), as well as Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment (previously SVEC), the foremost series devoted to Enlightenment studies, and the correspondences of several key French thinkers.
