Theorizing Early Modern Studies
Theorizing Early Modern Studies (TEMS) is a collaborative, interdisciplinary workshop investigating Europe and the wider world during the early modern period (late 16th-early 19th centuries). In addition to training graduate students, furthering the research of our own faculty, and serving as a means of attracting and retaining outstanding faculty in early modern studies, the collaborative brings top-level researchers to Minnesota to benefit from the rich creative environment fostered by TEMS, and who in turn enrich our local research community. TEMS demonstrates that the laboratory model in the humanities is an important complement to the formal conferences, publications, graduate seminars, and solitary work that characterizes successful research in these fields.
