Claude Duret, Histoire admirable des plantes et herbes esmerveillables et miraculeuses en nature… (Paris, 1605)
Early modern European travelers to the Safavid Empire were very interested in documenting the exotic sites and customs that they encountered during their voyages, from cityscapes to geographical information, as well as foreign costumes, religious practices, material objects, flora and fauna, and antiquities. Visitors described and analyzed Zoroastrian rites and rituals, they gave detailed accounts of the Shia Muharram mysteries celebrated in cities such as Isfahan, Ardabil, and Shamakhi, and provided depictions of ancient sites such as Persepolis.

Join us for the first meeting of the MREMS of 2017-18. We'll be kicking off with a discussion of Dr. Carol Symes' Past & Present article, and accompanying blog post about Popular Literacies and the First Historians of the First Crusade. Dr. Symes' work addresses broader questions of literacy, the use of vernacular, material culture, and what might be meant by the term feminist history. 

Early Modern English Reading Group [EMERG] - seminar 1

Start: Oct 26, 2017 5:00:00 PM
End: Oct 26, 2017 7:00:00 PM

For this first session, Luke Prendergast has put together a brilliant, if skin-crawling, selection of insect related material for us to read and discuss, all of which can be downloaded; please do feel free to bring along your own arthropodic texts, to supplement Luke’s selection! Our intention has never been to shackle the reading group with any kind of dogmatic approach, manacled by rigid conceptions of genre, form, or critical approach, so all you need to do is come ready to participate in whatever way you want to. Also, please do circulate this invite to anyone that might be interested in joining us.
