Printmakers, Women and Jansenism in Eighteenth-Century Paris (1713 – 1764)

My research will explore histories of art, religion, and gender in eighteenth-century Paris. I will investigate how prints depicting leading religious women were produced, disseminated and encountered during the period’s religious disputes. My research will uncover the extent to which these images acted as catalysts for provoking socio-religious change in a period established on patriarchal structures where women were left out of discourse. My research project will contribute to both the history of the period and towards understanding the wider sociology of visual culture and its impact.
