Nova Reperta: Invention and Globalization in the Renaissance – panel with Sven Dupré, 2 May

What was new in the renaissance? What were some of the catalysts for change? How did globalization affect technology in the early modern period? Using Giovanni Stradano’s famed Nova Reperta print series as a case study, this international symposium and its related collaborative research project will consider the relationship between novelty, technology, and globalization in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, exploring in particular the role of the printed image to disseminate knowledge.

On Friday May 3, Sven Dupré will participate in a panel meeting:

11:15 am – 12 pm Image Making and Visuality

Sven Dupré, Utrecht University/University of Amsterdam
Claudia Swan, Northwestern University
