Welcome to Early Modern News Networks, a blog featuring events, updates and matters of interest arising from the Leverhulme-funded project “News Networks in Early Modern Europe”. The project brings together its own network of five leading scholars of early modern news culture from across the continent to establish new approaches to the study of news networks, their formation and their functioning, that will lay the foundations for a methodologically coherent European history of news and newspapers.
Participating in the network are:
Professor Joad Raymond (University of East Anglia)
Dr Paul Arblaster (Zuyd University, Maastricht)
Dr André Belo (Université Rennes 2)
Professor Carmen Espejo (Universidad de Sevilla)
Professor Mario Infelise (Universita Ca’ Foscari Venezia)
The project will also feature contributions from guests and associates at its various meetings over the next two years; the network will hold a series of workshops in five European cities, each an important centre of early modern news production and distribution, culminating in an open symposium in London in the summer of 2013. The first meeting of the group takes place in Antwerp in November, and the project website is currently under construction. Watch this space for news and announcements!
