CFP: Early Modern Sensory Experiences

The CFP for our next annual conference is now open! This first annual conference on the theme of 'Early Modern Sensory Experiences' will take place at Kellogg College, Oxford on 9-10 June 2022. It will consider sensory experiences from a variety of perspectives, which might include the following:

  • Contemporary perceptions of the senses in relation to particular human activities.
  • What different sources or artefacts reveal about intended and real sensory experiences in particular places or contexts.
  • The intersection of the different senses and the different components (tangible and ephemeral) involved in a particular human experience.
  • How sensory experiences were shaped by and in turn shaped cultural, social and economic conditions.
  • How the movement of people, objects, practices and their associated sensorial experiences gave rise to the transfer of similar, or the development of new, sensory experiences.
  • How sensory experiences varied according to gender, social class, race or other perceptions of difference.
  • How consideration of the senses might offer new insights into transcultural exchanges.

​The CFP closes on 14 January 2022. For further details see here.
