Society for Early Modern Catholic Studies

Kathleen Comerford

Last weekend, at the Sixteenth Century Studies Conference, we made the
decision to incorporate the two-year-old Society for Early Modern Catholic
Studies (SEMCS).

The Society is committed to furthering an understanding of Catholic issues
in the early modern world [approximately 1450-1750] and the cities,
regions, and countries that remained predominantly Catholic or were divided
between Catholics and Protestants or Catholics and non-Christian peoples.
The research focus of the Society is neither limited to Europe, nor to a
particular academic discipline. Further, the Society itself is not
confessionally based. The Society was created in response to a need for
more coherence and intellectual sharing among scholars who work on
Catholic-related subjects in the early modern world.

Membership is open to scholars in all fields of early modern studies and to
all levels of post-bachelor's degree academic standing. Dues, in the
amount of $10.00 per year, cover an annual reception and administrative
costs. In addition, portions will be set aside to provide financial aid to
graduate students who wish to attend the Sixteenth Century Conference. In
advance of the conference, the board will announce application procedures.

The Society has a listserv discussion list, which is generally low-volume.
