DIDEROT’S LETTRE HISTORIQUE ET POLITIQUE regarding the French book trade

Speakers : Andreas Rahmatian, Professor of Commercial Law, University of Glasgow

Chair : Uma Suthersanen, Professor of International Intellectual Property Law, Queen Mary, University of London

Diderot’s Lettre Historique et politique was probably written in 1761 but was only published in 1861 by the Comité de l’Association pour la défense de la propriété intellectuelle et artistique. It has never been translated into English.

Professor Rahmatian will suggest that Diderot had quite an “Anglo-Saxon”, Lockean conception of literary property and authorship and was skeptical about the French privilege system.

Time: 6:15 for 6:30

Venue: Bristows, 100 Victoria Embankment, EC4Y 0DH
