Hey Truewit, have you heard much talk of epistemology at RSA? It's emerging as perhaps the critical buzzword in my SAA panel, so I'm wondering if this is part of a larger critical shift in early modern studies or just a random shared interest due to the topic of my panel.

    What about epistemology? Are people just using the word or are they actually working on the topic in any sort of rigorous way?

    No, not just using the word; it's the central focus of their papers. Could just be a coincidence, but I've noticing it a lot more than I used to.

    Didn't notice anything overly episteme-oriented, but SAA and RSA are two entirely different barrels of monkeys.
