Stephen Bowd in Partnership Collaboration Awards success
Professor Stephen Bowd (Edinburgh) and Dr John Gagné (Sydney) will be collaborating on the project ‘Shadow agents of war: Italy, 1480-1530’. (Published 18 September, 2018)
The School of History, Classics and Archaeology was delighted to hear that Professor Stephen Bowd, Professor of Early Modern History, has been awarded $8000 AUS to run workshops in Edinburgh and Sydney as part of the Partnership Collaboration Awards (PCA) with Dr John Gagné, Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney.
The PCAs provide funding to support initiatives in internationalisation with the aim of fostering partnerships with the University’s strategic partners in collaborative research and joint teaching.
Professor Bowd said, ‘The High Italian Renaissance is renowned for its cultural achievements, but it was a society torn apart by brutal conflicts that we are just beginning to understand from a social perspective. This collaborative project rethinks what and who made war and by looking at traditionally marginalised groups (bandits, refugees, and animals) it aims to transform the way we think about pre-modern war.’
Two workshops will be held - one in Edinburgh in June 2019 and one in Sydney (date tbc).
