THE PROJECT HISTORY
St James's Park and The Mall, after 1745 by Joseph Nickolls, oil on canvas, (1771)
A GIS Sociability project that:
• originated in an MSHB (Maison des Sciences de l’Homme en Bretagne) project (2009-2012), Socialum, « La Sociabilité en France et en Grande-Bretagne au Siècle des Lumières : l’émergence d’un nouveau modèle de société »
• was developed by GRISOL (Groupe de Recherche Interdisciplinaire sur la Sociabilité des Lumières)
• relies on the research published since 2012 by its extended network of scholars in a dedicated bilingual collection co-edited by French and British academics, "Transversales" (Paris, Le Manuscrit) as well as in various books and journals (Boydell, BSECS/Journal for Eighteenth Century Studies, Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Palgrave Macmillan…)
• has become a European Project (H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie RISE Project: H2020 DIGITENS, 2019-2022) that involves the secondments of its members to British, French and Canadian institutions (BnF, Musée Cognacq-Jay, The National Archives, McGill Library) followed by the production of ground-breaking entries.
