HARVARD UNIVERSITY
International Seminar on the History of the Atlantic World, 1500-1825


Bernard Bailyn, Director

Workshop
Intellectual History: New Findings, New Approaches, in the Study of
Religion, Science, and Cultural Identity


April 10, 2010

This Workshop will concentrate on current innovations in the study of the
intellectual history of the Atlantic world, the flow of ideas between
Europe and the Americas, from JosÚ de Acosta to Jonathan Edwards ľ new
findings on Biblicism, alchemy, science, architecture, critiques of
idolatry, and approaches to the Enlightenment. The intention is not to
present descriptive summaries of these subjects but for leading
authorities to identify, from work in progress, innovative points of
inquiry and to indicate profitable lines for future study.

There will be three sessions, running from 9:00 a.m. through 5:30 p.m.
Participants are invited to join in the discussions. áLunch will be
provided and a reception will follow the afternoon session.

Attendance at the Workshop and participation in the discussion are open to
the academic community. Historians at the beginning of their careers are
especially encouraged to attend. áTravel and accommodation expenses will be
the responsibility of attendees, though the Workshop can provide local
lodging information. Registration for the Workshop by April 1 is requested.
