CFP: Scientiae 2019: Early Modern Knowledge

 

Queen’s University, Belfast, 12-15 June 2019.

 

Scientiae is an international research group that investigates the variety of ways people of the Renaissance and early modern periods understood the world and implication this knowledge held for them. This is the period that saw the development of academic disciplines, but the formation of these disciplines was an interdisciplinary process that drew upon developments in many other fields of scholarly endeavour, including Biblical exegesis, art theory, history and literary humanism, as well as natural philosophy, alchemy, occult practices, and trade knowledge.

 

Scientiae 2019 will the group’s eighth conference, and will feature plenary addresses by Ingrid Rowland (Notre Dame/Rome) and Rob Iliffe (Oxford), as well as plenary panels led by Subha Mukherji (Cambridge), and Marco Sgarbi, Pietro Daniel Omodeo, and Craig Martin (Venice).

 

Proposals are invited individual papers, complete panels, workshops and seminars on any field of intellectual endeavour in the period 1400 to 1800.

 

Proposals are due 30 December 2018.
