introduction text from a rare book

Students in Professor Pauline Goul’s French course “Early Modern Écologies” (FREN 4510) will take over the Special Collections Research Center’s Instagram feed starting April 27. The students will showcase the rare books that they’ve used this semester as part of a project to explore representations and writing about the environment during the Early Modern period in France. The students will also explore interesting aspects of their books as physical and technological objects.

Follow the Special Collections Research Center on Instagram and #ecolivres to enjoy the students’ perspectives of working with rare books as objects as well as their insights into ecological writing from the Early Modern Period.
