Antoine Lilti teaches modern history at the École Normale Supérieure. His research interests include history and historiography of the French Enlightenment, sociability in modern Europe, and forms of celebrity. He has published to much critical acclaim Le Monde des salons. Sociabilité et mondanité à Paris au XVIIIe siècle, (Paris: Fayard, 2005), which received the prize Gustave Chaix d’Est-Ange from the Académie des sciences morales et politiques, and is to be published in an English translation as The society of salons : sociability and worldliness, (transl. Lydia Cochrane, New York: Oxford University Press, 2011).
