As the main aim of our project is to provide a first global study of transcultural knowledge production in the early modern age (c.1470- c.1620), by examining the development of academic disciplines within the international and multicultural environment in which they were taught and studied, one can only envisage the vastness of research areas and case studies that are explored by the team members of the project. Many of the obtained findings are awaiting their publications with some being already available for the readers being published with Open Access attribution.

Here, the details of individual articles, chapters, and book contributions as well as monographs not covered by our Book Series are provided.
