Early Modern War and the Formation of Europe

The Center for Austrian Studies at the University of Minnesota at Minneapolis hosted an interdisciplinary conference on Early Modern War and the Formation of Europe this weekend (16-17 November 2018).

The conference included diverse perspectives on war, culture, and society in the seventeenth century from historians, art historians, musicologists, and literary scholars. I was pleased to be able to participate in the conference and present new research on the concept of religious warfare and the language of “troubles” in early modern France.

Mary Lindemann delivered a keynote lecture on “The Ecological and Environmental Consequences of the Thirty Years’ War: Longue durée and histoire événementielle” at the conference.

The conference Program is available as a .pdf file.
