Imaginative Geographies: Travels of the Mind in Early Modern Europe

28th September 2011 at the University of Bristol

While Renaissance and Early Modern Studies are focused on the two and a half centuries between 1500 and 1750, the areas of research that the period encompasses are
multi-disciplinary and wide-ranging. A common thread is the spatial or
geographical dimension. This conference aims to attract a wide audience,
to explore correspondences between geography, literary and historical
fields of research, to enable varied and cross-disciplinary discourses
between scholars and students of the arts and sciences, and to enrich
renaissance and early modern research with methodological and thematic

There will be panels on: 'Spiritual Geographies',
'Cartographic Spaces', 'Mapping the Other', 'Mapping the Familiar'.
