Early Modern Research Workshop

Faculty Coordinators: Barbara Bono (English), Henry Berlin (RLL)

The Early Modern Research Workshop unites scholars and graduate students with research and teaching interests in the period between 1450 and 1800. It exists to establish an interdisciplinary network of scholars at UB, facilitate the exchange between early modernists and invited scholars, raise awareness of contemporary debates across fields, encourage harmonization of curricular development, furnish a forum for faculty to present works-in-progress, and coordinate graduate student mentorship.
