This course offers an original and in-depth examination of power, ideology, culture and social change between 1500 and 1750. It provides students with all the skills needed by an early modern historian, including palaeography (reading sixteenth- and seventeenth-century handwriting), using manuscripts and other primary sources, conceptualizing research topics, and writing up the results with emphasis on correct referencing and bibliographical conventions.
