Winter 2019:

In an age of globalization and radical changes in the volumes and modes of communication, the exchange of both material goods, ideas and practices has gained increasing scholarly attention. Historians have sought to characterize what is involved in these exchanges, and a lively debate has ensued. This reading seminar will not only follow the theoretical debate, but also elucidate the major achievements of research focusing on such issues from the European Renaissance and the global encounters of the Dutch Golden Age to the “invention” of Romanticism. Methodologies, sources and research practices will also be discussed. The seminar is addressed to graduate students from all epochs of history and art history as well as advanced undergraduates.


No pre-requisites have been entered for this course.
