Research

I work mainly on the history and culture of British protestantism, especially puritanism and dissent, and I have a special interest in the relationships between religion and medicine. My projects for 2021 include:

  • a journal article on the notion of vulnerability in plague times
  • a chapter for a collective volume on puritanism, dedicated to the Cambridge eighteenth-century minister, Joseph Hussey
  • work on the edition of the correspondence of Sir Thomas Browne for the Complete Works to be published by OUP under the editorship of Claire Preston

I am also interested in the history and epistemology of English studies.

Most of my published work can be found on HAL-SHS, the French open access repository, https://cv.archives-ouvertes.fr/anne-dunan-page

After an M.Phil at Cambridge University (Sidney Sussex College), a PhD on John Bunyan and dissenting pastoral, I was appointed lecturer then senior lecturer at Montpellier University (2001-2008) before being promoted to a professorship at Aix-Marseille University (2009).

I work mainly on the history and culture of protestantism, especially British Dissenting Churches and early-modern sects, as well as on the relationships between religion and medicine. I have also published on the huguenot refuge, John Bunyan, Roger L’Estrange, and on religious correspondence.

I’m member of the AHRC-funded team editing the complete works of Thomas Browne, under the general editorship of Claire Preston (Queen Mary University of London), for which I co-edits Browne’s correspondence with Andrew Zurcher (Cambridge).

I held a fellowship from the Institut Universitaire de France from 2011 to 2016.

From 2010 to 2011 I was a CNRS associated researcher at Maison Française d’Oxford, which I’ll be joining again in 2021 as Visiting scholar during a 6-month sabbatical. I have had various visiting scholarship, at Clare Hall (Cambrige) in 2004, Oxford (History Faculty and Lady Margaret Hall) in 2010-2011, then at Queen Mary University of London (2013-2016).

I was Vice President for research of the Société des Anglicistes de l’Enseignement Supérieur (2012-2016), President of the International John Bunyan Society (2013-2016), President of the Société d’Études Anglo-Américaines des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles (2017-2020) where I founded an interdisciplinary series published my Manchester University Press, https://manchesteruniversitypress.co.uk/series/seventeenth-eighteenth-century-studies/
