Textuality and Diversity: A Literary History of Europe and its Global Connections, 1545-1659

Project description

A deeper understanding of textual and sociocultural diversity

The ERC-funded TextDiveGlobal project will explore multiple texts from around the continent and the world to produce an interdisciplinary literary history of Europe and its global connections for the period between the mid-16th and mid-17th centuries. It will draw on a wide range of texts both made and encountered by Europeans – from Mesoamerican codices and Jesuit neo-Latin plays to live speech and popular songs. The project’s overall objective is to understand how textual and sociocultural diversity inform one another in different contexts and regions. Key outputs will include a two-volume publication, a database of information and images relating to the materials, as well as a series of seminars in Europe and the United States.
