This interdisciplinary seminar hosts papers and discussions about any aspect of the world of Italian culture and society in the period 1400-1800. We are keen to range across the Italian peninsula and beyond to include, as the seminar’s name implies, Italian communities, cultures and connections in the Mediterranean, Europe and the rest of the world. The seminar is open to all postholders, early career researchers, doctoral and Masters students, and interested undegraduates, especially those considering graduate studies.
Convenors: Filippo de Vivo (St Edmund Hall); Leah Clark (Kellogg); Jane Crawshaw Stevens (Brookes); Zoe Farrell (St Edmund Hall); Federica Gigante (History of Science Museum); Giuseppe Marcocci (Exeter); Emanuela Vai (Worcester).
The seminar is funded by the Faculty of History and St Edmund Hall, Oxford. We meet four times a term on Tuesdays in odd weeks of the Oxford University Term at 4.30pm, in the Old Dining Hall in St Edmund Hall, Queen's Lane (unless otherwise specified). The seminar is open to the public. To get updates about the seminar, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
