Sociability and Democratic Practices in Britain and Ireland, 1789-1832

Now available online: Journal LEAVES, n°12, July 2021, co-edited by Rémy Duthille, Magalie Fleurot & Laurence Machet

This issue of Leaves is the result of a collective effort that began in October 2017 with a conference on “Sociability and democratic practices in Great Britain” in the late Georgian period. The conference examined how sociability accommodated a growing number of political demands that were being voiced coming from outside, and often directed against, the principal state and ecclesiastical institutions (the royal court, Parliament, the Church).
