Early Modern Forum
About the Project
The Early Modern Forum aims to encourage academics and postgraduates who rarely have the opportunity to meet in person, to collaborate easily and effectively, particularly through our partner institutions: Warwick, Boston, Yale, the Huntington/USC, Vanderbilt, and the Sorbonne.
By implementing existing web technologies the forum will allow people to annotate and comment on primary sources or work-in-progress, attend seminars via video-conference, and above all communicate with people with similar research interests.
In addition, the forum is also a shared information store and we actively seek academic contributions. We edit and collate podcasts and videos of research seminars and interviews with academics, maintain an index of useful web links for early modernists, offer a primary source sharing platform, and host research (especially postgraduate) in a variety of forms.
Contribute to the Early Modern Forum
Write a brief life, record a podcast, or suggest material for a conference spanning our six research partners. Click here for more information on each way you can contribute to the early modern forum.
Interested in participating?
We are seeking to expand the collaborative output of the forum to include scholars working in the field of early modern studies at institutions beyond our partners institutions.

In May 2013, Warwick and Queen Mary partnered together to lead a series of workshops on the theme of friendship in the long eighteenth century. The intention of the partnership was to bring scholars and PhD students working across the humanities at the Eighteenth Century Centre at Warwick and Queen Mary Centre for Eighteenth-Century Studies to a series of workshops exploring friendship in theory and practice.
This project, modelled on John Aubrey's 'Brief Lives', enables researchers to contribute short articles and podcasts, on aspects of the lives of the famous that have not made it into standard biographies. It also provides the opportunity for contributions which seek to rescue an interesting individual from obscurity.
My Favourites is a compilation of short (10-15 minute) interviews with academics who have given papers at the University of Warwick where they are invited to discuss their favourite primary and secondary sources.
More information about these projects and the many other exciting collaborations available through the Forum can be accessed here.
