EMSE Annual Conference 2024: Sensory Subjectivities

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’, considers sensory experiences as instances or reflections of identity and alterity and will 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.
