The rise of nation-states? Alternative pathways of political change in late medieval and early modern Europe


Save the date for the next in our series of virtual research talks, where we are delighted to be joined by Dr Duncan Hardy (e2016).

Duncan Hardy is a historian of central Europe, specialising in the history of the Holy Roman Empire between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries. He was elected to a Title A Research Fellowship at Trinity College in 2016, and now also holds the position of Assistant Professor of Late Medieval and Early Modern European History at the University of Central Florida.

This will be the first opportunity for Trinity alumni to hear from Dr Hardy, whose first book, Associative Political Culture in the Holy Roman Empire: Upper Germany, 1346-1521, was published in 2018 and includes discussion of the European models of state formation. In this engaging Trinity Research Talk, Dr Hardy will discuss aspects of his academic research career so far as well as current approaches to historical research.
