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.
