Sabancı University History Program graduate students Nimet İpek and Aydın Baran Gürpınar and faculty member Tülay Artan will be attending the Early Modern History Workshop, which will take place at Central European University in Vienna, on 14-18 August 2022.

The Early Modern History Workshop is a collaborative research experiment, a summer school in which postgraduate students and faculty from leading universities interrogate current approaches to the discipline of Early Modern History and grapple with pressing methodological questions. The Early Modern History Workshop began in 2011 as an informal initiative between the universities of Princeton, Oxford, and Münster. The first workshop was in Oxford, hosted by the Research Centre of St John’s College. Since then, it has expanded to include Sabanci University (Istanbul), CEU (Vienna and Budapest) and King’s College London. In 2018, already in its eighth year, the workshop returned to Princeton University. Over the past years, this exciting collaboration has evolved from a two-day workshop into a dynamic, responsive research network in which graduate students, early and mid-career researchers, as well as senior scholars have addressed a wide range of topics including ‘visual cultures’, ‘global early modernity’, ‘the city and urbanism’, ‘history of emotions’, ‘material culture’, and ‘religion and belief’. The most recent workshop took place at Princeton University and explored ‘law and the legal sphere’. This summer, after a long hiatus because of CEU’s resettlement and then COVID 19, the Early Modern History Workshop will be gathering to discuss
