Anne Dunan-Page is Professor of British Studies at Aix-Marseille University. She was research fellow (délégation CNRS) at MFO in 2010-2011 and a Member of the Institut Universitaire de France from 2011 to 2016. She works on early-modern religious history, with a special interest in lived religion, popular culture and dissenting and separatist communities. Her latest book, with Michael Davies and Joel Halcomb, is entitled Church Life in Seventeenth-Century England: Pastors, Congregations, and the Experience of Dissent (OUP, 2020).
Anne has developed a parallel interest in the history of English Studies, and the role and influence of anglicistes outside France, especially Renaissance scholars such as Henri Fluchère, MFO’s first director. When in Oxford, Anne will therefore concentrate on the MFO archives, in the first instance tracing its early institutional history from WWII to the early 1970s, the years spanning the directorships of Henri Fluchère, Auguste Anglès and François Bédarida. She has started blogging on the MFO archives here: https://anglistique.hypotheses.org/category/archives-mfo.
Anne has just finished a five-year term as director of the Research Centre on the English-Speaking World at Aix-Marseille University (LERMA, UR 853) and is currently First Vice President of section 11 of the National Council (CNU, études anglophones). She was Vice President for Research of the Société des Anglicistes de l’Enseignement Supérieur, President of the International John Bunyan Society, and President of the French Society for Anglo-American Studies (17th and 18th centuries). Until recently, she was also general editor of an interdisciplinary collection at Manchester University Press: https://manchesteruniversitypress.co.uk/series/seventeenth-eighteenth-century-studies/ For further information, see https://cv.archives-ouvertes.fr/anne-dunan-page.
