Priority Deadline: Friday, March 15th

Final Deadline: Friday, March 29th

For more information & to Apply:

In its third consecutive year, the GenMod Summer Seminar will investigate Global Genealogies of Early Modernity, with the goal of developing a more thorough understanding of how different disciplines define “modernity,” particularly as the historically-oriented humanities fields reimagine passages to modernity in global perspective. Our method of inquiry will take a comparative form, encouraging scholars studying outside the Anglo-European system to bring forward alternative and local formulations of genealogy and heritability together in conversation with scholars of the European world. We will also place special focus on the role of public discourse in genealogy, by incorporating indigenous models from around the globe.

Overall, the GenMod Summer Seminar proposes to investigate cross-disciplinary narratives of when, where, and how “modernity” took shape as a way to reveal how the past has helped to shape the present and to understand better how these various approaches can provide resources to shape the future ahead of us.

Among the distinguished seminar faculty this summer are Professors Carla Nappi (Pitt, History; early modern China and history of science), Stan Chu Ilo (DePaul, Theology; African political and religious history, global Christianity), Anna Bonta Moreland (Villanova; medieval philosophy, comparative theology, Christianity and Islam), Christopher Nygren (Pitt, History of Art; Renaissance and Early Modern) and Ryan McDermott (Pitt, Literature; Medieval and Early Modern Religious Literature). The seminar will again take place at the University of Pennsylvania, sponsored by the Collegium Institute.
