Stanford is an internationally recognized center for the cross-disciplinary study of the Republic of Letters, the community of learned men and women that spanned Europe, the Americas, and parts of Asia from roughly 1400 to 1800 and who set knowledge in motion through the continuous exchange of ideas, information, and opinions in letters.
This Humanities Center workshop brings together faculty and graduate students working on any aspect of the Republic of Letters, a subject of broad humanistic interest for understanding the nature of scholarly, mercantile, literary, and artistic communities in the early modern period.
