TransLatin The Transnational Impact of Latin Theatre from the Early Modern Netherlands

Project Details

Description

During the last decade, transnational literary studies try to overcome structures of ‘national’ literary historiography grounded in nineteenth-century state-building. Literary studies of early modern Europe (1500-1650) are being rewritten, but the intrinsic transnational impact of Neo-Latin literature, especially drama, has been overlooked. This is particularly unfortunate, since this omission has resulted in a distorted view of early modern literature in European languages.
