Course content

This course offers an original and in-depth examination of power, ideology, culture and social change between 1500 and 1750. It provides students with all the skills needed by an early modern historian, including palaeography (reading sixteenth- and seventeenth-century handwriting), using manuscripts and other primary sources, conceptualizing research topics, and writing up the results with emphasis on correct referencing and bibliographical conventions. Guidance will also be given on how to present research findings orally.
