The Voltaire Foundation invites colleagues, researchers and students interested in the 18th century to hear about ongoing projects and research at the VF and to engage in conversation about the projects and the VF’s involvement in digital research in Oxford and beyond. After a series of brief project presentations there will be a chance to get hands-on insights into current projects and to discuss with the VF’s researchers – to be continued by coffee and sandwiches.
