About This Journal
Founded in 2000 by David Siar and Crystal Bartolovich, Early Modern Culture strives to create something like the active and on-going inquiry of a good seminar. Hence, the journal publishes works-in-progress by major scholars in early modern studies, along with a set of responses from readers.
In 2016, Early Modern Culture merged with Upstart: A Journal of English Renaissance Studies. As a result, Early Modern Culture now publishes stand-alone essays, and book and theater reviews, as well.
