Durham Early Modern Conference

It is with regret that, due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, the full 2020 Durham Early Modern Conference has been postponed until 6-8 July 2021.

The global health crisis and lockdown requirements around the world have resulted in many people feeling isolated, not only from their personal, social contacts, but also from their professional networks. The Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies has therefore set up a series of online events related to this year’s Conference to ensure that as many research conversations as possible can continue to flourish during this time. All are welcome to join these online sessions, which are free of charge.

Registration for the Conference Sessions has now closed.


About the Durham Early Modern Conference

The Durham Early Modern Conference is an annual conference organised by the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies (IMEMS) at Durham University. It offers a broad and inclusive interdisciplinary forum for any aspect of early modern studies, covering the period c.1450 to c.1800.

In 2013 Durham’s Seventeenth-Century Studies group, which was originally founded in 1985, became an integral part of IMEMS, beginning a new role within one of Durham University’s flagship research institutes. Building on the success of the Durham Seventeenth Century Conference, in 2017 the decision was taken to re-launch this regular scholarly event with a more ambitious timeframe. The emphasis is deliberately multi- and inter-disciplinary, with papers displaying a full range of methodological approaches and spanning national and disciplinary boundaries.
