Global Early Modern Studies

Global Early Modern Studies (GEMS) is a research group of faculty and students from UC San Diego. Through discussions of works-in-progress, the group brings together members of several departments–Philosophy, Literature, History and History of Science, Music, Visual Arts, Theater, and more–to provide constructive feedback at various stages of the writing process. This coming May, GEMS will hold its first day-long symposium, entitled Troubling the Human: Material Entanglements of Early Modern Worlds. 

For more information on GEMS, individual members, research projects, courses, events, and other announcements, please visit the blog at Those who have questions about GEMS or wish to be added to the mailing list should contact graduate coordinator Stacie Vos.
