    PRIVACY Seminar: Privacy in Early Modern Correspondences

    Letters were the most important means of communication in Early Modern Europe. In written correspondence, individuals shared scholarly ideas, represented intimate experiences, planned artistic projects, challenged social conventions, and much more. In such exchanges, writers readily refer to individual states and to personal opinions, but always in a socially shared space of communication, defying any notion of a privacy untouched by the public. How do we examine Early Modern correspondences in a way that takes seriously individual aspects as well as social conventions? At the workshop Privacy in Early Modern Correspondences, a number of prominent international scholars join members of the Centre for Privacy Studies in tackling this methodological challenge. Focusing on individual letter writers, on specific correspondences, and other contexts of epistolary communication, we will examine aspects of Early Modern correspondences as they relate to the private and the public.

While we may think of storage as a way of temporarily disposing items of reduced usefulness for the owner, and thus loosening the ties between item and person, national initiatives to collect and store DNA from citizens have revealed the opposite. » Read more
