Conference organized by Caroline Bertonèche (Université Grenoble Alpes) and Alexis Tadié (Sorbonne University) in the framework of the H2020
Supported by the Université Grenoble Alpes, Sorbonne Université, the GIS Sociabilités and the SERA (Société d'Études du Romantisme Anglais).
This conference will investigate the intricate relationships between sports and literature and the arts in the long eighteenth century.
Sports are a particular good place to reflect on sociability, while the cultural approach enables an understanding of sports which goes beyond their history. We understand the place of sports in our societies if we look at their cultural representations and at the work they do.
