June 25 - June 27

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

A conference in honor of Edward Muir that is part of the CRRS’s 50th Anniversary Celebration

25-27 June 2014 – Toronto, Canada

The Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary with a conference in honor 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.

Speakers include:

Edward Muir ǀ Natalie Zemon Davis ǀ Peter Arnade ǀ Albert Russell Ascoli ǀ Caroline Castiglione ǀ Patricia Fortini Brown ǀ Paul Grendler ǀ James Hankins ǀ Richard Kagan ǀ Susan Karant-Nunn ǀ Thomas Laqueur ǀ Regina Schwarz ǀ John Martin ǀ Guido Ruggiero ǀ Ethan Shagan
