In this seminar we will discuss the social and cultural history of the Enlightenment. Through an exploration of the forms and locations of the Enlightenment—such as the press, salons, clubs, and coffeehouses—we will explore how Enlightenment ideas were disseminated. In addition, we will examine some of the major themes of Enlightenment thought including religion, exoticism, science, race, and gender.
