A two day conference exploring 'Early Modern Sensory Encounters'. Interest in sensory experiences of the past has grown in recent years, with scholars engaging with both interdisciplinary and anthropological approaches in order to better understand historical lived experiences. This annual conference explores the visual, auditory, tactile, gustatory and/or olfactory elements of particular experiences across the globe between c.1400 and c.1700. This year’s conference, ‘Sensory Encounters’, will consider sensory experiences as instances or reflections of cultural exchange and discuss possible methodologies and approaches to this particular subject.
