UCL’s Centre for Early Modern Exchanges celebrates its tenth year anniversary this year and the launch of its PhD programme in Early Modern Studies. To mark this occasion we are bringing together researchers associated with the Centre with colleagues from the award-winning Centre for Editing Lives and Letters (CELL) for a roundtable discussion of future directions in research, methodologies and the state of the field of early modern studies. Our focus will be on how different methodologies from connected histories to digital humanities are generating innovative perspectives on the frontiers between old and new worlds, new theoretical understandings and shedding new light on intercultural interactions in the period 1450-1800.
Participants included Zoltan Biedermann (SPLAS), Sarah Dowding (Bartlett), Chloe Ireton (History), Victoria Moul (Greek and Latin/English), Lisa Sampson (Italian), Alexander Samson (SPLAS) and Matthew Symonds (CELL).
