We are happy to announce that all members of our research group as well as colleagues from Britain, France, Scandinavia and Russia will participate in the Sixty-First Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America (RSA) in Berlin, 26–28 March 2015.

In five panels, we hope to explore the transnational communication of early modern revolts through diplomatic correspondence. Each panel has its own geographical focus and offers insight into our most recent research.
