Early Modern Exchanges
The Centre for Early Modern Exchanges is dedicated to the study of the diverse cultural, historical, economic and social exchanges between England and Europe, European countries, the Old World and the New in the period 1450-1800. The work of the Centre focuses on the complex intercultural interactions underlying the emergence of national identities and vernacular literatures in this period, interrogating labels such as ‘England’ or ‘Britain’, ‘East’ and ‘West’, the ‘New World’ and ‘Europe’.
