‘Cross-disciplinary approaches to the study of knowledge-making in the early modern world (1450-1800)’ is a student-led conference supported by the London Arts & Humanities Partnership (LAHP) on the overlap, cross-fertilisation, and collaborative potential between the Humanities and Social Sciences across studies on the history of knowledge-making in the early modern world (1450-1800).

The conference is open to all PhD candidates from any department within Arts & Humanities and Social Sciences in the United Kingdom.

Aims of the conference: to deepen the understanding of how a certain type of cross-disciplinarity already characterised knowledge-making along cultural encounters in an expanding world from c.1415 onwards; to highlight how PhD students use cross-disciplinary approaches to better understand their primary sources and the contemporary intellectual framework within which their research is situated; and to promote similar events and future collaborations among the panellists and the audience.

Date: 14th October 2017

Venue: Dr Williams Library (London)

Organisers: Marina Bezzi (CNPq-funded PhD candidate at SELCS, University College London) and Joseph da Costa (LAHP-funded PhD candidate at SPLAS, King’s College London).
