Devin Vartija began his PhD in the department of History and Art History at Universiteit Utrecht in September, 2013, with funding from the Dutch Organization for Scientific Reserach (Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek - NWO). He completed the Research Master's in History at Utrecht University in 2012 and did his bachelor's in the unique interdisciplinary programme 'Arts and Science' at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada.


This workshop is a seminar series for Princeton students and faculty interested in the study of early modern history. The series brings together a community of early modernists that transcends common subdivisions in this field. The series provides graduate students with a forum in which to present works-in-progress, grant applications, research papers, and dissertation papers.
