2015-12016 Distinguished Visiting Scholar

Civility, Violence and Civilization, 1500-1800

Stuart Carroll is a Professor of Early Modern History at the University of York. He has wide interests in the history of early modern Europe and the history of violence. He is currently working on project entitled The Origins of Civil Society, drawing on sources in French, German and Italian, as well as English.

His initial research work centred on the political culture during the French Wars of Religion, and on the interface between noble followings and popular religious mentalities, and he was twice winner of the Nancy Roelker prize for the best article published in English in early modern France (2000 & 2003). More recently, he published a major evaluation of the role of feud and vendetta in early modern France: Blood and Violence in Early Modern France (2006), which led him to re-think the role of violence in history in the edited collection, Cultures of Violence: Interpersonal Violence in Historical Perspective (2007).

His most recent book, Martyrs and Murderers: The Guise Family and the Making of Europe (2009), was awarded the J. Russell Major prize by the American Historical Association in 2011 for the best French history book of the year.

This event is free and open to all. No registration is required. For further information, please contact Joseph Hawker at 416-946-8698.
