The Early Modern Boundaries Project, funded by a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award (BARSEA) and based at Queen Mary University of London, is a pilot initiative offering a new platform for early modernists with multilingual, transnational or comparative interests to discuss research queries among targeted groups of other researchers.
The network works like a customizable mailing list. Members join a searchable directory of researchers, and can send posts to relevant sections of the whole group. Most discussions take place via email but members can log into the platform to read posts and messages, view a directory of researchers, compose messages and change email settings (it is simple to opt-out from emails if preferred).
Members can also post announcements about news, events, projects and publications on the platform that aren’t sent by email, but are included in our regular newsletter.
Visit the project website at www.earlymodernboundaries.com for more details. New members can sign up here: https://emboundaries.mobilize.io/registrations/groups/4289. You can also hear about developments through our Twitter feed @EMBoundaries.
