New Horizons for Early Modern European Scholarship

The study of early modern Europe has long been the source of some of the most creative and influential movements in historical scholarship. New Horizons for Early Modern European Scholarship explores recent developments in historiography both to exhibit the field's continuing vibrancy and to highlight emerging challenges to long-assumed truths. Essays examine

•how key ideas and intellectual practices arose, circulated through scholarly culture, and gave way to subsequent forms
•Europe's transforming relationship with Asia, the Americas, Africa, and the rest of the world
•how overlooked evidence illuminates vital but obscured people, practices, and objects
•connections between disciplines, types of sources, time periods, and places

Opening up emerging possibilities, this book demonstrates that early modern European scholarship remains a source for groundbreaking historical insights and methodologies that would benefit the study of any time and place.

Contributors: Alexander Bevilacqua, Ann Blair, Daniela Bleichmar, William J. Bulman, Frederic Clark, Anthony Grafton, Jill Kraye, Yuen-Gen Liang, Elizabeth McCahill, Nicholas Popper, Amanda Wunder

Reviews

"These lively, well-crafted essays speak directly and meaningfully to the volume's central questions: What's new and interesting in the field of early modern European history? Why should readers in the twenty-first century still care deeply about developments prior to 1800? I love this book."—Sarah Gwyneth Ross, author of Everyday Renaissances: The Quest for Cultural Legitimacy in Venice

"This collection of brilliant essays provides innovative discussions of a fascinating new early modern history—global, multifaceted, populated with a diverse cast of characters, and focused on materials and practices, as well as texts."—Pamela O. Long, author of Engineering the Eternal City: Infrastructure, Topography, and the Culture of Knowledge in Late Sixteenth-Century Rome

"This welcome volume describes and contributes to the transformation of the field."—Peter Burke, author of The Polymath: A Cultural History from Leonardo da Vinci to Susan Sontag
