Description

 

This conference is concerned with the manifestations of what has been called 'late', 'Tacitean', 'pragmatic' and 'neo-stoic' humanism. Speakers will explore its relationship with Ciceronian humanism; its association with politics, pedagogy, literature and visual culture; its impact on natural philosophy and the applied sciences; its role in seventeenth-century state-building, colonialism and religious and civil conflicts. If there was a prevailing intellectual culture of northern Europe, how did local contexts reflect or complicate that prevalence?

 

Speakers include Daniel Andersson, Anthony Grafton, Harro Hopfl, Jill Kraye, Brian Ogilvie, Markku Peltonen, Jennifer Richards, Richard Serjeantson, Alan Shepard, Jacob Soll and Malcolm Smuts.

Organizers:
Dr Aysha Pollnitz
Dr Michael Ullyot

This conference has been organised with support from the British Academy, the George Macaulay Trevelyan Fund and CRASSH.
