What are DIGITENS scholars working on?

These podcasts were created by the audiovisual service of the UBO (the DUN) to present the general public with our themes of research within the "sociability" project.

The purpose is also to contrast these objects of sociability with today's practices. Reflecting on eighteenth-century sociable practices should also make us think of how and why we use these forms of sociability today and what values were and are attached to these objects and practices.

Special thanks to Caroline Vilatte and Romane Foubert!
