Fifteenth Workshop on Early Modern German History


7 May 2021

Organized by the German Historical Institute London in co-operation with the German Historical Institute Washington and the German History Society
Conveners: Bridget Heal (University of St. Andrews), Katherine Hill (Birkbeck, University of London), David Lederer (NUI Maynooth), Alison Rowlands (University of Essex) and Hannes Ziegler (GHI London)
Venue: Online event (Zoom)


Our first workshop ran in 2002 and has established itself as the principal regular forum in Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland for new research on early modern German-speaking Central Europe. It fosters exchange on work-in-progress between post-graduates and experienced scholars in a relaxed atmosphere. Previous transdisciplinary themes include artistic and literary representations, medicine, science and musicology, as well as political, social, economic, military and religious history. Contributions are also welcome from those wishing to range outside the period generally considered as ‘early modern’ and those engaged in comparative research on other parts of early modern Europe.

All students and academic researchers interested in Early Modern German History are very welcome to attend. There is no charge for attendance but you will need to register in order to take part.

If you want to attend, please register your attendance with Carole Sterckx: by 4 May
