Event details

Reuter Lecture 2020


The lecture will focus on the relationship between early modern global and maritime history, and shall argue for the importance of the legal element in shaping both. Starting with reflection elicited by three ERC-funded projects on the Early Modern Mediterranean, I shall discuss why the interconnectivity generated by legal interactions in that time and place played a vital role in the shaping of the modern world. We need to recognise the importance of this legal history and reassess the neglected importance of Mediterranean developments within global history, thus giving it its proper place in our research agendas.

*Registration for this online event is required, by 26 November at 12PM. Details on how to join the online event will be sent to registered participants very shortly afterwards. To register follow this link .
