Early Modern Panels at ASPHS, Modena 2014

Here they are, see you next week!

(I’m concentrating here mostly on early modern Spain & Portugal, not Latin America or the late middle ages, etc., in the interests of space – obviously there are other panels and single papers of interest to the followers of this blog.)
