The Rutgers-Camden History Department presents the second Lees Seminar of the season.

The event will take place on Friday, October 24th at 4pm (please note the earlier start time) in the first-floor seminar room followed by a reception in the second-floor conference room in 429 Cooper Street. 

We welcome Jennifer Jones from Rutgers, New Brunswick, who will present her work on Therese Levasseur (Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s mistress) and the Enlightenment. Our commentator will be Joy Deborah Wiltenburg, who teaches and publishes on early modern Europe and women’s history at Rowan University.

The Lees Seminar series was endowed by Andrew Lees, Distinguished Professor of History to promote research endeavors. Scholars present work-in-progress through pre-circulated papers. Seminars open with an author’s introduction and a formal comment, followed by discussion and a reception.
