6 June @ 10:00 am - 7 June @ 7:00 pm

The annual interdisciplinary Early Modern Sensory Experiences (EMSE) conference on ‘Sensory Subjectivities’, 6 – 7 June 2024

EMSE 2024: Early Modern Sensory Subjectivities

6-7 June 2024, University of Oxford

The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH, The University of Oxford) and the Open University invite registrations for the annual interdisciplinary Early Modern Sensory Experiences (EMSE) workshop.

Interest in sensory experiences of the past has grown in recent years, with scholars engaging with interdisciplinary approaches in order to better understand historical lived experiences. This annual conference explores the visual, auditory, tactile, gustatory and/or olfactory experiences across the globe between c.1400 and c.1700.

This year’s conference, ‘Sensory Subjectivities’, welcomes papers that consider sensory experiences as instances or reflections of identity and alterity and which discuss possible methodologies and approaches to this particular subject.

Registration is only available for both days together (6-7 June 2024)

Online attendance is available for free.
