Carlotti Workshop - Paula Findlen

Presentations by Ingrid Greenfield (Villa I Tatti, Harvard); Trevor Burnard (University of Hull); and Miki Sugiura (Hosei University, Tokyo).

The travel account by the Florentine merchant Francesco Carletti (1573-1636) remains a major understudied source for global historians. Between 1594 and 1602, Carletti circumnavigated the world.

This series of workshops considers different aspects of early modern global history. At each meeting short informal presentations will be followed by an open discussion among participants.
