The first workshop takes place on 29 November 2013, in association with the University of Glasgow.
The second in a series of seminars focusing on the relationship between Literature and Union.
This workshop seeks to reflect on the role that interdisciplinarity and methodological pluralism play in the practice of intellectual and conceptual history, with the aim of intensifying the debate between them and exploring their relevance to the practice of other disciplines.
The workshop will be exploratory, with the aim of opening up discussion of some of the interconnections between seventeenth and eighteenth-century intellectual history in Britain. To do so it will focus on intellectual exchange between Scotland and England in the key years of the early enlightenment.
