This volume holds a number of contributions from a conference held at Stockholm University 2–4 September, 2010. It was a joint event held by the Department of Baltic Studies, Finnish and German in Stockholm and the European PhDnet Literary and Cultural Studies, initiated by Professor Ansgar Nünning, Justus-Liebig-University in Gießen, and supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).1 The aim of the conference was to bring together scholars from a variety of disciplines, not only to investigate material or literary history and culture but also to bring theoretical aspects from different fields of research into play. For the last thirty years or so there have been lively theoretical discussions about the correlation between literature and history, as well as literature and culture. The “cultural turn,” “new historicism,” the “linguistic turn,” as well as other theoretical approaches and aspects have contributed to a growing interest in investigating early modern literature and culture anew. The conference brought together scholars to (re-)examine the importance of historical perspectives in literary studies, as well as to scrutinize the impact of “cultural studies” on early modern scholarship. The participants engaged in many lively discussions in connection with the paper presentations, and we want to express our deepest gratitude to all of those who made the conference a success and who contributed with thought-provoking remarks that in the end were worked into the papers in this volume. A selection of revised papers was submitted to the editorial board for peer review and the reworked articles appear here.
