Originally titled Man and Nature/L'Homme et la nature, Lumen was established in 1982 as the annual publication of the Canadian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. Lumen is a bilingual journal based on the annual conference, and provides a refereed and interdisciplinary forum for excellent scholarship in eighteenth-century studies. Paid-up members who first deliver papers to the society's annual meetings are eligible to submit their articles to the organizers of meetings who are appointed by the Executive to serve as editors of each volume. Articles in English should conform to the Editorial Policy for articles submitted English.
