Early Modern Culture Online

Early Modern Culture Online (EMCO) is an interdisciplinary, open-access, peer reviewed electronic journal. EMCO aims at publishing original research on Renaissance and Early Modern culture, broadly construed, through a wide variety of approaches.

We invite edited studies on thematically related research in all areas of Renaissance and Early Modern literature, art history, language, philosophy and musical research.

The themes and cultural expressions discussed, and the wider relevance of Early Modern art forms and cultural statements in contemporary society, turn the series into a valuable resource for specialists as well as for the general reader.

EMCO is published by the Early Modern Research Group and The Bergen Shakespeare and Drama Network.
