  • Researcher

Sanja Perovic is Lecturer in French at King’s College, London and researches 18th-century literature and thought with a specific focus on the relations between the Enlightenment and Revolution. She also has broader interests in the representations of time. Her first book The Calendar in Revolutionary France: Perceptions of Time in Literature, Culture, Politics (Cambridge UP 2012) considers the unique role played by the French Republican calendar in the construction of revolutionary time. Her current project World History as World Court: The Theatrical Origins of Human Rights considers how the eighteenth century came to construct history as a universal, moral tribunal. Sanja has also published on 17th and 18th century French theatre, exemplary history, encyclopedisms, censorship and other aspects of revolutionary culture.
