Dylan Reid



I am a cultural and urban historian.

I hold a position as a Fellow at the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies at the University of Toronto. I am also assistant editor of the journal Confraternitas.

I study French history of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. My particular interest is the cultural life of the city of Rouen, the capital of Normandy, during this period.

My work overlaps the boundary between the history and literature, and I have always been interested in the ways in which the two disciplines can intersect and complement each other.

For further information, see:

I have given guest lectures on my work in various classes, as well as presenting many conference papers.

I have found that many of the issues that intrigue me in my historical work - social communities, political expression, cultural dynamics, civic engagement, the dymanics of cities - are ones I find fascinating and fundamental in my writing about current affairs.
