The UCL Centre for Early Modern Exchanges explores all aspects of intercultural exchange in the period 1450-1800.

This three-day British Academy supported Launch Conference will be a major international event promoting innovative research collaborations. Themes will include: travel, exile and migration; trade in material and cultural goods (including books and manuscripts); and the transition of literary and artistic influences across national and linguistic borders. Translation and language learning will be key interests, as will ‘translatio’ in a broad sense as the transformative appropriation of ideas and identities. Hence the conference will investigate encounters with ‘others’, the dissemination of scientific and medical knowledges, and the early modern world’s interaction with its ancient and medieval pasts. This is a timely conference which will showcase innovative scholarship and have significant impact on the field of early modern studies.
