Charles-Edouard Levillain

 


Charles-Edouard Levillain was educated at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de la rue d’Ulm, in Paris, where he specialized in English history and literature (1992-1998). He also holds a degree in Public Law and Administration from Sciences Po Paris (1997). He spent a year at King’s College London as Visiting Fellow (1999-2000) and successfully defended his doctoral thesis at the Sorbonne in 2003. He was teaching assistant at the Sorbonne (1998-2001), Fondation Thiers scholar (2001-2002), teaching assistant in Amiens (2002-2004), before being appointed Lecturer in British Studies at Sciences Po Lille - Université de Lille 2. In 2007-2008, he was a Fellow at the Netherlands Institute of Advanced Study (Wassenaar). His work concentrates on Anglo-Franco-Dutch relations in the early part of the long eighteenth-century (c.1650 - c.1720), with a special interest in the interaction between diplomatic and political history. He has written articles on William III (1650-1702), the Glorious Revolution (1688), Andrew Marvell, Dutch propaganda against Louis XIV on the eve of theguerre de Hollande (1669-1672) and the role of Tacitism in the Anglo-Dutch Republic of Letters (1651-1698). He is now busy completing a book on the impact of Louis XIV’s foreign policy on Anglo-Dutch politics (1668-1688). The French version will be out in 2009 or 2010. A slightly different English version is in the making. Charles-Edouard Levillain is also co-editing with Koen Stapelbroek a conference volume on Dutch Decline in the Eighteenth Century. The volume will include a substantial article on Montesquieu’s trip to Holland (1729).
