The aim of this blog is twofold. In the first place, it will serve as an online representation of the work of the research group ‘Practices of Power and Interpersonal Relationships at Dynastic Centres (1500-1800)’. Its members will publish entries relating to their respective projects. Prospective themes include: questions of methodology, discussions of specific archival sources, bibliographical reviews and surveys, as well as announcements and reports of relevant events. Secondly, the blog will be a platform for the exchange with scholars with similar research topics.
