Early Modern World History Workshop

Seminar or event series

This is a space for scholars to air work in progress and to gain feedback on new projects or arguments. We often hear from our graduate students, usually in paired papers, as well as from colleagues and visiting historians.

This workshop is complemented by a longer seminar alternating week by week throughout the term. Both fora adopt a global approach to the early modern and we are keen to explore connections and comparisons within and beyond Europe.
