University of Minnesota
Theorizing Early Modern Studies

TEMS Homepage.

The Workshop

The TEMS Workshop organizes conversations around works in progress by scholars of the early modern period. We welcome everyone, especially faculty and graduate students in the Humanities. The workshop offers an opportunity for interdisciplinary, collaborative reflection on the relationship between history, literature, the fine arts, philosophy and the sciences.

We welcome feedback and suggestions for future TEMS events. Please e-mail any of the TEMS organizers with your ideas.
