    THE VOLTAIRE FOUNDATION


    Annual Report 1994–5

    The Master of Balliol College, Dr C.R. Lucas, succeeded Dr J.M.
    Roberts, formerly Warden of Merton College, as chairman in October
    1994. At the end of the period under review the terms of office of
    Professor M. Delon, Professor H.J. Lüsebrink, and Professor H.T. Mason lapsed and the
    committee wishes to thank them for their participation in its work.
    The role of overseas members is an important one and their commitment
    of the required time is much appreciated. The part played by
    Professor Mason, for many years Editor of Studies on
    Voltaire
    and latterly both Chairman of the Directors and a
    Fund Committee member, has been not only central but fundamental.
    Thanks to him this important series not only survived its founder's
    death but went on to flourish even in difficult times. Through
    eighteen years some 161 volumes have appeared under his aegis, making
    the Studies one of the major academic journals in the
    arts field. The Foundation, not to mention eighteenth-century studies
    in the United Kingdom, in Europe and indeed, following his recent
    presidency of the International Society for Eighteenth-Century
    Studies (the fourth Oxford-associated person to hold that post),
    internationally, owe him a considerable debt not just for scholarship
    but also for dedication, diplomacy, and organisational skill. As
    Editor he worked for others: we hope retirement will allow him to
    continue his own personal, high-level, contributions to the republic
    of letters.

    The Foundation has continued to settle into its new quarters
    at 99 Banbury Road and has also continued to explore and expand into
    new technology. Such moves have necessitated some structural changes
    including an increased overlap in membership between the committee
    and the Directors, the latter being aimed at productive co-operation
    and efficient overall management. The role of the Secretary of the
    Chest has been an important one here and the committee would
    particularly like to recognise the positive commitment of the
    outgoing Secretary, Mr Ian Thompson.

    As part of its routine activities the Committee continues to
    provide some support of the research side of the Foundation and to
    assist the Taylor Institution Library with its purchase of relevant
    antiquarian material. It also made grants to Miss Anne Charlton (New
    College, Oxford) and Dr U. Thiel (Australian National University) for
    work in France and in Oxford respectively.

    The Directors of the Voltaire Foundation, who carry out the
    editorial and publishing side of the activities initiated by the
    Besterman Bequest, were again chaired by Dr R.A. Cooper. Dr N.E.
    Cronk (St Edmund Hall) was appointed Director. The Directors report
    that twenty-three new titles were published this year.

    Three new volumes appeared in the Complete works of
    Voltaire
    , under the general editorship of Ulla Kölving:
    volumes 35–6 containing the Dictionnaire
    philosophique
    , edited under the direction of Christiane
    Mervaud by Andrew Brown, Marie-Hélène Cotoni,
    Jacqueline Hellegouarc'h, Ulla Kölving, Christiane Mervaud,
    Jeanne R. Monty, José-Michel Moureaux, Bertram Eugene
    Schwarzbach, Jeroom Vercruysse, and Roland Virolle; and volume 69
    containing Dieu et les hommes edited by Roland Mortier
    and the Collection d'anciens évangiles edited by
    Bertram Eugene Schwarzbach. Of the eighty-four volumes allocated to Voltaire's
    literary works, twenty-four had been published by 31 July 1995.

    Christiane Mervaud's introduction to the Dictionnaire
    philosophique
    was also published in a separate paperback
    edition and was reprinted during the year. Professor Mervaud, of the
    Université de Rouen, was awarded the Prix de
    littérature française from the Académie des
    sciences morales et politiques for her contribution to Voltaire
    scholarship.

    Volume 51 of the Correspondance complète de
    Jean-Jacques Rousseau
    was published (Index des
    éditions, ouvrages cités, citations, locutions, listes
    des hors-texte, des illustrations, errata et complément,
    prepared by Janet Laming).

    Twelve volumes appeared in the series Studies on
    Voltaire and the eighteenth century
    , edited by H.T. Mason,
    including:

    318. Madeleine van Strien-Chardonneau, Le Voyage de
    Hollande: récits de voyageurs français dans les
    Provinces-Unies (1748–1795)
    .

    320. Pour encourager les autres: studies for the
    tercentenary of Voltaire's birth, 1694–1994
    , edited by
    Haydon Mason.

    321. Graham Gargett, Jacob Vernet, Geneva and the
    philosophes
    .

    322. Voltaire, Discours de l'empereur Julien contre les
    chrétiens
    , edited by Jose-Michel Moureaux.

    324. Tanguy L'Aminot, Politique et révolution chez
    Jean-Jacques Rousseau
    .

    325. Jean Bloch, Rousseauism and education in eighteenth-
    century France
    .

    326. Enrico Rufi, Le Rêve laïque de Louis-
    Sébastien Mercier: entre littérature et
    politique
    .

    328. J.A.W. Gunn, Queen of the world: opinion in the public
    life of France from the Renaissance to the Revolution
    .

    A new series, Archives de l'Est: littérature et
    relations culturelles
    , under the general editorship of Georges
    Dulac and co-published with CNRS-Editions, was launched with the
    publication of Denis Fonvizine, Lettres de France
    (1777–1778)
    , translated from the Russian and edited by
    Henri Grosse, Jacques Proust, and Piotr Zaborov.

    Other titles published were: Livre dangereux,
    Voltaire's Dictionnaire philosophique. A bibliography of the original
    editions and catalogue of an exhibition
    , by Andrew Brown with
    the collaboration of J. Patrick Lee, Nicholas Cronk, and Ulla
    Kölving; Nicholas Fréret, légende et
    verité
    , edited by Catherine-Volpilhac-Auger and Chantal
    Grell; Correspondance d'Eugène Fromentin, edited
    by Barbara Wright, co-published with CNRS-Editions; Vivienne G.
    Mylne, Le Dialogue dans le roman français de Sorel
    à Sarraute
    , edited by Francoise Tilkin; and volume 17
    of the British journal for eighteenth-century studies,
    general editor Brean Hammond.

    Haydn Mason's retirement from the general editorship of
    Studies on Voltaire was announced in April 1995.
    Professor Mason will be succeeded on 1 October 1995 by Anthony
    Strugnell, Reader in French Enlightenment Studies at the University
    of Hull.

    The tercentenary of Voltaire's birth was marked by the
    Foundation with a bipolar international congress `Voltaire et ses
    combats', held at the Taylor Institution in Oxford and at the
    Université de Paris-Sorbonne from 29 September to 5 October
    1994. Jointly financed by the French Ministère de la Culture,
    the British Academy, and the Foundation, the event attracted over 300
    participants and 154 papers were read. The organising committee,
    headed by Ulla Kölving and Christiane Mervaud, was composed of
    Andrew Brown, Nicholas Cronk, Keith Gore, Chantal Grell, Maurice
    Lévy, Sylvain Menant, and François Moureau. The
    secretariat was ably managed by Elizabeth Kreager. Worcester College
    provided the Oxford base and events were held at the Ashmolean, St
    Edmund Hall, and Keble College. A gala concert, devised by Keith
    Gore, was held in the Sheldonian in partnership with the Campaign for
    Oxford. The words of Voltaire and his contemporaries were read by
    Denis Quilley and the music performed by the Orchestra of the Age of
    Enlightenment. In Paris (where events were co-ordinated by
    François Moureau) the participants enjoyed the hospitality of
    the Rectorat de Paris, the Mairie de Paris, the Sorbonne, and the
    Comédie-Française. The transactions of the congress will be
    published in 1996.

    The Foundation also hosted a reception in London after the
    unveiling by the French Ambassador of a green plaque erected by the
    City of Westminster in Maiden Lane to commemorate Voltaire's visit to
    England during the years 1726–7. This led to further television
    coverage of the Foundation in France.

    Andrew Brown, Executive Director of the Foundation, and Ulla
    Kölving, General Editor of the Complete works of
    Voltaire
    , were awarded the Médaille de vermeil by the
    City of Paris and the Grande médaille de la francophonie by
    the Académie française for the work of the Foundation.

    Professor René Pomeau was awarded the Grand Prix de
    l'histoire by the Maison de Chateaubriand for his work on Voltaire,
    in particular the five-volume biography Voltaire en son
    temps
    , which has sold strongly throughout the year.

    In May 1995 the Executive Director and the General Editor of
    the Complete works of Voltaire made a research visit to
    St Petersburg, sponsored by the British Academy, and were present at
    celebrations of the bicentenary of the National Library of Russia,
    where Voltaire's library is preserved. Together with Professor Mason
    and Dr Strugnell they represented the Foundation at the Ninth
    International Congress on the Enlightenment, held in Münster in
    July 1995.

    The Foundation has completed its first year operating as a
    limited company, wholly owned by the University. Publishing turnover
    was £681,273 producing an operating surplus of £35,753.

    Information about the Foundation, its activities and
    publications, is available at http://www.voltaire.ox.ac.uk/.

    DEPARTMENT FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION

    The Department for Continuing Education exists to make the University
    accessible to men and women in ways which complement the University's
    provision for its resident members. Each year the department mounts
    several hundred courses, either part-time or short full-time,
    covering most subjects taught within the University (except
    management and clinical medicine). Courses last anything from one day
    to ten weeks (full time), and between ten weeks and two years on a
    part-time basis. During recent sessions about 11,000 students have
    enrolled annually for the department's courses, the average length of
    study being twenty hours.

    Apart from a large number of individual members of the
    University who offer courses or give lectures, the Department for
    Continuing Education works in co-operation with an increasing number
    of other departments and faculties throughout the University. It
    welcomes expressions of interest from individuals and departments who
    wish to become involved in or to explore continuing education
    activities.

    The department's main provision is organised through three
    programme offices (see below), each of which is able to provide more
    detailed information on current and forthcoming activities. In
    addition, the Kellogg Residential Centre, when not being used for
    courses, can occasionally be made available for conferences and other
    residential meetings.

    The Public Programmes Office

    This office (Director: Mr R.T. Rowley) offers to the public a wide
    range of study opportunities in most academic disciplines through
    part-time day, evening, and short residential courses. Although most
    programmes have open entry and require no formal entry
    qualifications, an increasing number are award-bearing, at access,
    undergraduate, or postgraduate level, and many of these call for
    evidence of suitable entry requirements. During the summer the
    department offers one-week residential study opportunities, mainly
    for domestic students, through the Oxford University Summer School
    for Adults based at Rewley House, and the Oxford Experience, based at
    Christ Church. A range of study tours is also available to various
    parts of Europe and further afield. The department also runs the
    Rewley House Film Theatre on Sunday evenings during term. Individuals
    interested in offering courses or in contributing to other programmes
    are invited to contact the office.

    Details of all courses are publicised in annual prospectuses,
    or are available at any time from the department (telephone:
    (2)70312).

    The Continuing Professional Development Office

    Short and extended courses

    This office (Director: Mr P.G. Combey) draws on departments and
    faculties throughout the University to offer courses designed to meet
    the needs of individuals and groups drawn from industry, the
    professions, commerce, and academia. Courses vary from one- or two-
    day intensive updating courses based on the latest academic research,
    to longer courses enabling professionals to review advances in
    specialised fields, and acquire new areas of expertise and additional
    qualifications. Areas covered include engineering, law, information
    technology and computing, mathematics and statistics, education,
    biomedical science, and social studies. Contributors to courses
    include Oxford academics and research staff, and experts from other
    universities and organisations in the UK and abroad.

    Conferences/Seminars/Workshops

    The CPD Office is also able to offer a conference organisation and
    management service to colleagues within the University and other
    organisations. The CPD Office has specialist skills in running
    national and international meetings, and more than fifteen years'
    collective experience of organising and managing conferences,
    seminars, and training courses for up to 500 delegates. The Centre
    provides a `total conference package' which combines the best of
    personal service with the highest professional standards.

    Services offered include the following:

    • Conference planning and academic support
    • Budget preparation and account management
    • Venue sourcing, including residential accommodation, lecture
      theatres, hotels, and catering support
    • Organisation of exhibitions and displays, design and provision
      of publicity
    • Promotion/advertising/marketing support
    • Mailing; compilation of databases
    • Sourcing possible sponsorship
    • Organisation of social programmes, excursions and tours
    • Translation and interpretation services, technical and audio-
      visual support
    • Pre-registration management and on-site registration services,
      preparation of pre-prints, binders, badges
    • Post-conference reports and proceedings

    Further details are available from Oxford (2)70361.

    The International Programmes Office

    This office (Director: Dr A. Hawkins) offers a wide range of courses
    to undergraduates, graduates, and continuing education students from
    around the world. These courses include a year-long full-time
    programme for Japanese women graduates and diplomats from the
    Republic of China, Taiwan, as well as a large number of three- or
    four-week courses held during the summer for students from Europe and
    North America. Programmes are held in partnership with institutions
    such as the Smithsonian Institution, University of California at
    Berkeley, Duke University, the University of Virginia, and
    Northwestern University in America. International Programmes also
    works with the British Council, the European Commission, and the ODA,
    as well as offering courses in partnership with the Bodleian Library
    and many other colleges and departments within the University.
    Subjects covered in these courses include topics from law and
    industrial relations through to archaeology, art history, and the
    physical and biological sciences. Tutors are drawn from Oxford
    academic and research staff, and expertise is also recruited from
    outside the University. Programmes vary in size from small groups of
    twenty-five students to larger programmes of over 200 participants.
    During the summer many residential International Programmes,
    including the Oxford International Summer School in English
    Literature, are held in colleges throughout Oxford, in addition to
    courses held at the Kellogg Residential Centre. Over the next few
    years the range of courses offered by the International Programmes
    Office will be expanded, drawing in more students from Europe, Japan,
    other countries in the Far East, and from elsewhere around the world.

    As the work of the International Programmes Office expands,
    approaches would be welcomed from those who have accommodation from
    which they would like to generate further income or from individuals
    with suitable qualifications interested in teaching on international
    programmes. Telephone: (2)70456.

    Scholarships for study in Germany


    Michael Foster Memorial Scholarship

    Applications are invited from members of the University for the
    Michael Foster Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship is tenable for
    ten months from 1 October 1996 at any university, technical
    university, or art or music academy (at the choice of the successful
    candidate) in Germany, and may be extended at the discretion of the
    Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst. The successful candidate must
    undertake research or other academic work in a field of his or her
    own choice.

    The scholar will receive a monthly maintenance grant and
    remission of university or institution fees and dues (but he or she
    will have to pay a compulsory Student's Union fee). A small grant
    will be paid at the beginning of the award period to cover incidental
    expenses and the scholar will be entitled to a small book grant each
    term. An additional grant will be paid to assist with travel
    expenses. A scholar who is married before taking up the award will
    receive an additional allowance, if accompanied by his or her
    partner. The scholarship is not tenable concurrently with any other
    travelling award. It should be noted that the scholarship does not
    include payment of any Oxford fees for which the scholar
    may be liable while he or she is in Germany. Candidates who hold
    British Academy studentships may however apply for suspension of
    their awards and suspension of status to enable them to take up the
    scholarship if elected.

    Candidates for the scholarship must be British subjects and
    members of the University who will not have attained the age of
    thirty-two years by 1 October 1996, and either (a)
    will have completed all the examinations required for the Oxford BA
    Degree, or (b) have embarked on a course of
    postgraduate study at the University. Candidates will normally be
    expected to show a reasonable proficiency in the use of German
    language, but if a candidate does not have a good knowledge of German
    a further grant may be made available to enable him or her to attend
    a language course in Germany before university entrance there.
    Candidates' proposed programmes of research must be such that they
    can best be carried out at a German university or other institution
    of higher learning.

    Applications must be received by the Secretary to the Board of
    Management, Michael Foster Memorial Scholarship, International
    Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, not
    later than Friday, 19 January 1996. They must include:

    (i) the applicant's age;

    (ii) a brief statement of his or her academic career;

    (iii) a brief programme of the work he or she proposes to
    undertake, the institution at which he or she would wish to study in
    Germany, the reasons for the choice of institution, and some evidence
    that he or she has made contact with the head of the chosen
    institution;

    (iv) a certificate from the head of his or her society that the
    application is made with the approval of the society and that the
    applicant is a British subject;

    (v) the names of two academic referees. It is the candidate's
    responsibility to ensure that references reach the Secretary by the
    closing date.

    Note: If applying for the Theodor Heuss Fellowship as
    well as the Foster Scholarship, one application will suffice.

    Hanseatic Scholarships

    These scholarships have been established by the gener- osity of the
    Alfred Toepfer FVS (Freiherr vom Stein/Friedrich von Schiller)
    Foundation which wishes to reciprocate the Rhodes Scholarships to
    Oxford from Germany. The aim of the Foundation is to promote closer
    Anglo- German links within a European context. At present two
    scholarships are offered each year.

    Candidates must be British subjects, unmarried, and graduate or
    undergraduate (final year) members of Oxford University. They should
    not have passed their twenty-eighth birthday by 1 October 1996, the
    date by which the scholars elected in 1996 will be expected to take
    up their scholarships. These are tenable preferably for two years for
    study at Hamburg University; exceptionally, the second year may be
    spent at another academic institution in Germany. The successful
    candidate must undertake research at doctoral or postdoctoral level
    or give evidence of a workable project not connected to a research
    degree. There is the opportunity to obtain a German degree.

    The value of the scholarships is currently DM 18,000 per annum
    and is subject to regular review. Sufficient knowledge of the German
    language is desirable, but when a candidate does not have a good
    knowledge of German, he or she is expected to attend a language
    course in Germany prior to university entry.

    Applications should be sent to the Secretary, Hanseatic
    Scholarships, International Office, University Offices, Wellington
    Square, Oxford OX1 2JD (from whom further particulars may be
    obtained) by Friday, 19 January 1996. The applications
    should include (i) the applicant's full name and age; (ii) a
    photograph of the applicant; (iii) a curriculum vitae;
    (iv) a programme of the work which the candidate proposes to
    undertake; (v) the names of two referees; (vi) a certificate from the
    head of the candidate's society that the application is made with the
    approval of the college and that the applicant is a British citizen;
    (vii) a health certificate. It is the candidate's responsibility to
    ensure that references reach the Secretary by the closing date.
    Interviews will take place in Oxford during February 1996 and the
    decision of the selectors will be announced shortly thereafter.
