Our sister Centre, the University College London Centre for Early Modern Exchanges, held its launch conference on 15-17 September, with an impressive muster of international speakers. Questions addressed included African Atlantic connections, conceptions of the Amerindian, diplomacy and culture, intellectual geography, women’s writing, festivals, neo-Latin literature, Anglo-French and Anglo-Spanish cultural relations, diplomatic and cultural relations with the Levant, the theory and practice of Hebrew studies, and epistemology and politics. The conference saw the launch of the new MHRA Tudor and Stuart Translations series. Keynote speakers were Barbara Fuchs, Andrew Hadfield, Brenda Hosington, Andrew Laird and David Norbrook.
