Launched in 2020, the Early Modern Workshop is a multidisciplinary forum where scholars working on the early modern period (broadly defined) can discuss their work with colleagues across departments. The aim is to foster conversations that go beyond departmental, disciplinary, and regional parameters, and to create an active community of early modernists here at the University of Virginia. If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please don't hesitate to contact us. We have an exciting schedule of presentations this year, and we look forward to seeing you there!
