How did they learn? How did they teach?: Exploring Knowledge Transmission from Late Antiquity to the Early Modern
Sat, 12/3 · 9:00 am—6:00 pm · A71 Louis A. Simpson International Building
Program in Medieval Studies & Committee on Renaissance and Early Modern Studies Graduate Conference
Much of our modern knowledge is the result of centuries of experiments driven by human desire to record and pass down successes, failures and lessons learned. The timespan from the periods often called “Late Antique” to that called “Early Modern” offers enormous scope to explore the historical record of knowledge transmission across diverse social contexts.
This conference will explore the many networks and forms of knowledge transmission active across the Late Antique and Early Modern periods. We will work within a wide span of geographical and chronological parameters as well as across disciplines.
