Memory and Identity in the Learned World

Memory and Identity in the Learned World
Community Formation in the Early Modern World of Science and Learning

On November 7-9, 2019, there will be a conference at Utrecht University on memory and identity in the early modern learned world. This conference aims at bringing together historians of knowledge, art historians, heritage scholars, philosophers of identity, museum curators, sociologists, literary and cultural historians, etc., who are studying cults of memory and community formation in the early modern world of science and learning. The central question for this conference is how scholars, scientists, and learned men and women formed a community by remembering and identification.

I will contribute with the paper: “Female Faces and Learned Likenesses. Visualising Female Intellectual Authority in the Republic of Letters: the Cases of Anna Maria van Schurman, Margaret Cavendish and Maria Sibylla Merian.” You can find the full program  here.
