Early Modern Studies

Bringing together students and faculty with an interest in the "long seventeenth century" (approx. 1550-1689) in Britain, Europe, and the Americas

The Townsend Center's Early Modern Studies working group, also known as the Berkeley Early Modern Organization, aims to bring together students and faculty with an interest in the "long seventeenth century" (approximately 1550-1689) in Britain, Europe, and the Americas.

Creative Economy and the Arts

Exploring and charting the term “creative economy” as it relates to arts policy, the art market, and urban development.

Global in scope, the Creative Economy and the Arts working group seeks to examine, through interdisciplinary discussion, the definition and application of the term “creative economy” as it relates to arts policy, the international art market, and urban development. The idea of creative economy relates to similar concepts, including creative industry and creative class, that have been, in the last fifteen years, taken up by governments throughout the world as a stimulant for economic development.

Performance in the Americas

We are dedicated to expanding research on performance studies in the American hemisphere.

This working group aims to strengthen and expand a network of scholars, practitioners and activists of the UC Berkeley campus community who are working in the area of Performance research in Latin/o America. Given our current placement within several departments across campus from Spanish and Portuguese, Ethnic Studies, Art Practice, Anthropology and Theater, Dance and Performance Studies, we recognize the need for an interdisciplinary space that would allow a focused group discussion on performance and live art practices in the Americas.

Room One Thousand

We seek to explore the bounds and potential of architectural study and its historical and critical implications.

Mission: In response to the spatial and material turn in the humanities, we seek to place in dialogue different perspectives on the built environment. Through a series of meetings, discussions, lectures and events, we aim to explore multiple approaches within and beyond the field of architecture. Ultimately, by engaging professionals and scholars in the humanities and sciences in the study of architecture, we will explore the ways in which different fields intersect with and enrich each other.

 

Mobilities and Materialities of the Early Modern World

A group for discussion of materiality in the early modern world

Global in scope, the Mobilities and Materialities of the Early Modern World Working Group seeks to integrate through interdisciplinary discussion two different spheres of scholarly inquiry: macro-economic studies of international networks and micro-historical engagements with materialities. In recent years, the promotion of synchronic, transnational fields, such as the ‘Global Renaissance,’ has made it incumbent on emerging scholars to develop competencies far outside traditionally defined specialties.

Eighteenth-Century Studies

Our group fosters interdisciplinary exchange between faculty and graduate students working in the long eighteenth century.

Our main objective is to foster interdisciplinary exchange between faculty and graduate students working in the long eighteenth century. The group meets monthly to discuss works of eighteenth-century moral philosophy, social history, political economy, poetry, fiction, and literary and art criticism. We host talks by distinguished scholars from within and without the UC system and, beginning in Fall 2011, will offer a forum for graduate students from UC Berkeley to present their work in progress.
