Northumbria University is extending an invitation on the 10th of October 2015 to the first workshop of a series of four launching an international collaborative project sponsored by the British Academy. The project investigates the nature and scope of higher learning and collaborative networks from the late Middle Ages to the era of Enlightenment. Our novel approach will consider topics that university historians have largely ignored: the intense collaboration between university scholars and instructors; printers and providers of teaching objects and tools; administrators and students at academies, independent colleges, gymnasiums and Latin schools. Contributing experts include renowned scholars in late medieval and early modern school, academy, book and university history of England, the German lands, France, Italy, Spain and bordering countries. Project leaders are Dr Anja-Silvia Goeing (PI, Northumbria University), Prof. Glyn Parry (University of Roehampton), Prof. Mordechai Feingold (California Institute of Technology).
For information about the project and registration for any of the four workshops please contact Anja at firstname.lastname@example.org . Please see also our website for programme updates.
