The European world of the 15th to 17th centuries saw unprecedented numbers of things, people, and ideas in motion. The 2008 New England Renaissance Conference will provide an interdisciplinary venue for discussing the rich variety of ways that movement influenced and reshaped the thought and practices of the era. Speakers representing a wide range of disciplines—music, art history, literature, and history—will explore with us how travel, trade, and translation moved things from one place or era or mode of thought to another. We will come together to think about mobility and migrations in the expanding early modern world.
