Early Modern Research Cluster
The Early Modern Research Cluster is inspired by a desire for a multidisciplinary community with shared and varied interests in early modern studies. The EMRC seeks to create such a community and to foster dialogue and debate. It will serve as a forum for faculty, graduate and interested undergraduate students, and affiliates and colleagues beyond UBC and SFU. The EMRC conceives of ‘early modern’ as global and flexibly ranging from 1300-1800.
This year, the EMRC will launch a colloquium series with talks given by UBC faculty. The meetings will be casual and talks will range from works-in-progress, to pre-circulated papers and polished presentations. The aim is to expand our scholarly community by meeting a few times a year to learn about and be inspired by each other’s work, and to discuss our interest in early modern studies.
Convener: John Christopolous
Meetings will be held in Buchanan Tower, room 1197. They will take place on Fridays from 2pm-4pm.
