Mapping Early Modern Religious Dissent
Call for Papers for our session at RSA 2020 in Philadelphia.
Among the diverse manifestations of religious dissent and non-conformity that might be mapped in relation to space and mobility we note:
– religious minorities, with reference to spatial segregation
– food regulations
– exile communities
– religious heterodoxy and social non-conformity (e.g. sexual and gender transgressions) in Early Modern cities
– religious “tourism” (travels to shrines and religiously charged locations, both for religious and cultural purposes)
We would also encourage papers exploring the new opportunities of research opened up for historians of the Early Modern period by technologies and digital humanities, especially in relation to the recent developments in Spatial Humanities and network analysis.
Proposals should be submitted by June 30, 2019 by email to Stefano Villani (firstname.lastname@example.org) and email@example.com.
