Durham Early Modern Conference
With regret, due to the ongoing uncertainties around the Covid-19 crisis and the complexities of organising a large-scale replacement online conference, we have made the decision to postpone the full resumption of the Durham Early Modern Conference for another year. The dates we are now working towards for our next face-to-face event are 5-7 July 2022. We anticipate however organising a scaled-down conference this summer on 6 and 7 July 2021. Please check back later for further information.
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.
