Graduate Summer Seminar:Genealogies of Modernity. When and how did we become modern? Many twentieth- and twenty-first century thinkers have identified an "age of reform," roughly 1350-1600, as the birthplace of modernity. Many of these accounts are declension narratives that locate the origins of modernity’s ills in late-medieval and Reformation-era intellectual developments. This July 3rd-7th seminar hosted at the University of Pennsylvania will re-examine several influential declension narratives and explore alternative possibilities from within the relevant disciplines. The seminar’s disciplinary foci are history, philosophy, theology, literary studies, and art history, but graduate students across the humanities are welcome to apply here. Deadline for submission is March 31st.
