Professor James Schmidt recently launched Persistent Enlightenment (http://persistentenlightenment.wordpress.com) a blog on the Enlightenment “as historical period and continuing project.”  Initial posts have explored the discussion of Diderot in the New York Times, the revised definition of “Enlightenment” in the Oxford English Dictionary, and the implications of Google’s nGram search for work on the history of concepts.
