I n 1996 the CESR re – affirmed its commitment to interdisciplinary research into key themes of European patrimony (including musicology,  art history and the history of the book), in an accord with the French Ministry of Culture, the CNRS and University  François – Rab elais of Tours. The CESR is an education and research centre , which welcomes students and researchers wishing to acquire an initial  or additional university education in all domains of the Renaissance. The CESR enjoys a double status, being at once  a UFR (Education and Research Unit) within the University  François – Rabela is of Tours and a UMR (Mixed Research  Unit 7323) affiliated with the CNRS (National Research Institute). The CESR’s research programmes are structured  according to disciplinary teams (history, history of art, French, neo – Latin and European literature, phil osophy,  musicology, history of science and techniques), research fields and team projects.


This research project is  the responsibility of  Professor  Chiara Lastraioli,  Director of the Maison des Sciences de  l’Homme Val de Loire  – USR 3501 . It focus es on the literature produced within the Italian  community that immigrated  to Geneva because of their religious convictions, extending from the 1540s to the beginning of the  17 th century,  when Geneva was governed by Jean Calvin and, later, by the administrative bodies emanating from his authority.  The objective of the p roject is a comprehensive study  of the texts published in Italian in  the dominated by censorship  Calvinist Geneva during the second half of the 16th century (and the early years of the 17th). One of the primary  intentions of this study is to take an inventory of the text s published ; then, to evaluate the stylistic, rhetorical and  linguistic impact of  Calvinist though t and theology in these texts. It is proposed to include an analysis that also takes  into account the political and social contexts in which these texts were designed and realised: the censorship put in  place by Calvin (and by the administrative organisms  emanating from his authority), the market and the  dissemination of Italian  books in a Reformation context.


The candidate must s how a deep experience in Romance Studies (Italian and French studies), as well as a research  experience in the field of the relationship between Italian Language and Literature, History of  the  Book and Religion  in Early Modern Europe. The candidate must ha ve a firm knowledge of the Renaissance religious literature and  propaganda. The candidate will be expected to participate in meetings of research gro ups and seminars organised by  LE STUDIUM and the Centre d’Etudes Supérieures de la Renaissance, and to promote a workshop on the topics of  this project.
