Sedition: Subversive and Controversial Literature in Europe, 1500 - 1700

Wednesday, 5 July 2017 to Thursday, 6 July 2017


Early modern Europe saw a sharp rise in the production, circulation and consumption of literature that was usually described by its opponents as 'seditious', a term which could cover anything from critical and oppositional writing to inflammatory works and pamphlets advocating tyrannicide and even regicide. The purpose of this workshop is to study the production, nature and circulation of such literature in its European dimension.

Venue: Seminar Room, Institute of Advanced Studies, Cosin's Hall

Time - 5th July: 2:30pm - 5:50pm
