Audrey Duru is Maître de conférences of French literature of Sixteenth-century, at the Faculty of Literature, University of Picardie-Jules Verne, chemin du Thil, 80 000 Amiens, France.
In both fields of study of poetics and publishing history, in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth-centuries France and Europe, my research interests include personal speech (specialy in french poetry) and gesture of publication. My thesis was about religious and spiritual French poetry, including a reading of devotional and spiritual treatises in prose. It led me to an approach of individual dissidence toward Churches, from pietism to mysticism, matching the schism between christian Churches. I work at present on the question of public sphere and its emergence in the Sixteenth century France.
