The Utrecht Centre for Early Modern Studies (UCEMS) is the largest research centre in the Netherlands for the period between ca. 1500 and 1800. Over sixty researchers from different disciplines collaborate in studying the history, language, literature, religion, philosophy, science, art and music of the early-modern period from an international perspective. They focus on themes such as cultural transfer, material culture, institutions and (in)equality, knowledge societies, language dynamics, and identity and reputation in the period of the Renaissance and Reformation, the Scientific Revolution, the Dutch Golden Age and the Enlightenment.
