Welcome to the Genealogies of Modernity Blog. This blog seeks to motivate and organize a cross-disciplinary inquiry into the meaning of modernity in various humanistic disciplines. It is housed within the broader Genealogies of Modernity project, sponsored by the Collegium Institute.
The project recognizes that the stories we tell ourselves about the passage to modernity are many and often conflicting even within one discipline. We offer a place for graduate students, early career, and established scholars to parse these narratives and to make legible the intellectual and cultural "kinships" that often unconsciously subtend these narratives.
