The course covers research projects that are comparative and interdisciplinary in conception, that bear a clear relation to present needs and debates, and that span at least 2 different linguistic, religious and/or ethnic cultures within Europe, or that relate 1 European with 1 non-European culture, in the period 1400 to 1700, or in later political or cultural uses and representations of early modern literature and history; by relating a broad understanding of text (in its original meaning of tissue, web or texture) to underlying events (the raw data of the past shaped into story by weaving or writing) all projects combine a textual-literary with a cultural-historical strand.
