The Italian Academies 1525–1700 Project presents:

THE FIRST INTELLECTUAL NETWORKS OF EARLY MODERN EUROPE

This major international conference is being hosted as part of the AHRC funded research project The Italian Academies 1525-1700: the first intellectual networks of early modern Europe.

Academies represent a vital and characteristic dimension of early modern culture.
There were ca. 600 Academies in Italy in the period 1525-1700. Frequently international in membership, and in correspondence with scholars across Europe, they were fundamental to the development of the intellectual networks later defined as the ‘République des Lettres’, and to the dissemination of ideas in early modern Europe. Their membership included pioneering scientists, writers, artists, political thinkers, and representatives of both sexes and all social classes. The interests of the Academies ranged from the humanities, to the figurative and performance arts, natural sciences and medicine; many were interdisciplinary in their outlook and activities.

However, the social and cultural phenomenon of the Italian Academies has hitherto attracted relatively little research due in part to the wide range of their interests and difficulties in accessing relevant information.

The  conference aims to explore research questions raised by the activities of Academies in this period.

Plenary lectures will be given by: Professor Giovanni Muto (Universtita’ Federico II Napoli); Professor emerita Alison Brown (University of London); Professor Virginia Cox (New York University); Professor Paolo Procaccioli (Università della Tuscia, Viterbo)

NB: Presentations are in English and Italian, indicated by   English, and Italian
