Our Inaugural Seminar, What is Early Modern History?, with Professor Merry Wiesner-Hanks, is now available to view online at our YouTube channel. The Centre for Early Modern Studies, Australian National University, brings together researchers and HDRs from the disciplines of history, literary studies, art and design, theatre and performance history, languages, linguistics, music, and the digital humanities who study the long early modern period (1450-1800). Sign up for our newsletter, follow us on Twitter @AnuCems, or see our website to read about current projects and future events.
I’m writing to provide an update on the ANZAMEMS DEVELOPMENT SCHEME (ADS), our forthcoming workshop series for HDR students and ECRs. Since our last communication with the ANZAMEMS membership, we have finalised the seminar schedule and topics (see below). We have 27 members enrolled in the workshops, and we are very much looking forward to meeting them. For any HDRs and ECRs who missed the first call, we invite them to apply to join the scheme.

The last Daphnis issue focuses on the sociability discourse in early modern Leipzig. This includes social practices like singing student and drinking songs like the ‘Dunkelmännerlied’ or eating goose at Martin’s Eve. This issue clearly makes an important contribution to the cultural history of the early modern period and is hence worth reading.

Eleonora di Toledo at 500
2022 marks the five hundredth anniversary of the presumed birth of Eleonora di Toledo. The past thirty years have witnessed the publication of numerous studies that have fundamentally changed our image of the duchess of Florence from a passive object of her husband’s will to an active collaborator in the construction of an autocratic state. These panels seek new contributions about Eleonora di Toledo from all disciplines. Some themes that might be explored are “The Literary Eleonora;” “The Posthumous Eleonora;” “Eleonora in the 1550s.” Comparative approaches to the political and economic activities and the artistic, literary, musical, and religious patronage of other contemporary ruling women are especially welcome.
Proposals should be sent by August 2 to Bruce Edelstein at email@example.com or Natalie Tomas at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a title (15 words max), an abstract (150 words max), and a short CV (300 words max).
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.
