2021 saw the publication of the first volume of The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Aphra Behn. Editing Behn’s remarkable oeuvre has involved an international team of scholars, drawing on expertise from across the humanities. ‘How to do things with early modern words’ marks the 350th anniversary of the start of Behn’s career, and aims to celebrate and develop interdisciplinary approaches to early modern studies. Bringing together researchers working in literature, digital humanities, history, theatre history, and language in the 1500-1750 period, the conference will explore cutting-edge themes, perspectives and approaches in scholarship on the early modern world.
