Rethinking Early Modernity: Methodological and Critical Innovation since the Ritual Turn


CanalettoThe Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary with a conference in honour of Edward Muir, whose innovative studies of Venetian politics and culture helped to establish cultural anthropology and ritual as major analytical frameworks for scholarship on early modern European history. Building from Muir’s contribution to the field, the conference hopes to focus on the significance of the methodological changes that have characterized early modern research in history, literature and art history over the last thirty years and to reflect upon how these changes have affected our understanding of the importance of the period.
