UCEMS’s aim is to encourage exchanges of ideas and practical collaboration among early-modernists, both junior and senior, and to facilitate the organisation of conferences in the wide field of early modern studies.

With early modern Europe as its chief area of interest, UCEMS serves a wide range of disciplines: History, Language and Literature, Religion, Philosophy, (History of) Science, Cartography, Arts, Music, Drama.
