Chloe Hogg


Chloé Hogg specializes in French literature and culture of the 17th and 18th centuries, with particular interests in political culture and literary practices. In 2019, she published Absolutist Attachments: Emotion, Media, and Absolutism in Seventeenth Century France (Northwestern UP), which studies the creation of the political subject of absolutism through modern modes of political adhesion mediated by emotions and news. Her second research project, “Material Classicism,” focuses on the relationship between material culture, consumer culture, and literature in 17th- and 18th-century France. Other research interests include 17th- and 18th-century French women writers, early modern journalism, and print culture.
