EMoDiR (Early Modern religious Dissents and Radicalism) is an international research network devoted to understanding religious dissent in Europe. It is committed to gathering together a variety of research projects on early modern religious culture which, given its multifaceted nature, is conceived as a dynamic system. Based on a detailed investigation that transcends traditional historiographical boundaries (notably national and/or confessional), we wish to examine the discursive constructions and the socio-cultural practices of religious dissent. The declared aims of EMoDiR are the promotion of national and international research projects; organising seminars, meetings, conferences and workshops; publication of its own activities; supporting interdisciplinary and international collaboration; disseminating research carried out by the group; establishing research networks and scientific exchanges. We send a monthly newsletter with information on research activities, conference participation, workshops, recent publications on the subject of early modern religious dissents and radicalism. Even if we privilege activities organised by the members of the network themselves we also try to include other relevant notices.

Please do not hesitate to let us know if there are any activities you organise or you come to know about that you wish to circulate among the members of EMoDiR and others who might be interested. For further information: www.emodir.net
