Medieval and Early Modern Studies

Early Modern Studies

This interdisciplinary research group will bring together faculty and graduate students whose scholarship focuses on the early modern period, ca. 1400-1800. We seek to promote research on early modern cultures and societies through the lenses of a variety of disciplinary approaches, across national boundaries, and within a global perspective.
