Centre for Early Modern Studies ANU Inaugural Seminar

What is Early Modern History?

Please join us in person or through the Zoom platform for our Inaugural Seminar on Tuesday July 13, when Professor Merry E. Wiesner-Hanks will talk about her latest book, What Is Early Modern History?, which was published in March in the Polity ‘What Is History?’ series.

The work offers a concise guide to historical research from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries, within and beyond Europe, including subfields and approaches to the period. She will discuss how she conceptualized and wrote it, and the ways this changed while writing during the COVID pandemic. The seminar will be followed by a Q&A and discussion.
