Stereotyping in early modern British public sphere: History as Fieldwork

This two-day conference seeks to explore patterns of stereotyping in early modern British public spheres and how they influenced the negotiation of power across different spheres of life. To do this, the conference invites you to think of early modern research as a form of ‘fieldwork’, which could benefit from – and in turn enhance – more contemporary forms of ‘fieldworks’ conducted across the social sciences. The conference accordingly brings together early modernists, C20 historians and psychologists, all interested from different angles in how representations shaped meaning and social relationships. The meeting thus pushes interdisciplinary dialogue to a new, exciting, direction.
