Fellowship Work Summary, 2003–04
Todd W. Reeser finished work on his book Moderating Masculinity in Early Modern France. He completed two chapters of his new book project Translating Platonic Sexuality in the Renaissance, one of which, "Re-Reading Platonic Sexuality Sceptically in Montaigne's 'Apologie de Raimond Sebond,'" will appear in a volume entitled French Renaissance Masculinities, edited by Philip Ford (Cambridge French Studies, Cambridge University Press). He also coauthored (with Jeff Peters) an article, "Between Freedom and Memory: The Early Modern in Barthes's Le Degré zéro de l'écriture," which has been accepted for publication in the journal EMF: Studies in Early Modern France, in a special issue on contemporary readings of the early modern period (forthcoming, 2005).
