(Dis)entangling Global Early Modernities Conference

CGIS South Building, 1730 Cambridge Street, Tsai Auditorium (S010)

"(Dis)entangling Global Early Modernities, 1300-1800"

This conference proposes a new concept - (dis)entanglement - to provide alternative narratives of the early modern world, 1300-1800. Recent scholarship has emphasized the integrative nature of economic, material, and religious developments. In contrast, this conference will examine what the “global” could mean in intellectual and cultural interactions in terms of both integration and disintegration across multiple continents and oceans. The conference participants will explore how the notion of “(dis)entanglement” allows us to evoke a polycentric early modern world that is simultaneously connecting and disconnecting.
