Upcoming activities

Aside from an online platform, the Early Modern Book project was designed as a mean to give more visibility to early career researchers through talks and to promote a multidisciplinary approach by organizing thematic workshops. We also wish to make communication easier within the project by organizing meetings. Members of the project and institutions interested in helping us organizing events can contact us using via email at admin(at)embookproject(dot)org. Activities also appear on the calendar (category: Early Modern Book project).
