In 2014, LERMA signed a cooperation agreement with the international Research group in Early MOdern Religious DIssents and Radicalism (EMoDiR), represented by Federico Barbierato (Verona) and Anne Dunan-Page (LERMA).
EMoDiR is an international research network devoted to understanding religious dissent in Europe. It is committed to gathering together a variety of research projects on early modern religious culture which, given its multifaceted nature, is conceived as a dynamic system. Based on a detailed investigation that transcends traditional historiographical boundaries (notably national and/or confessional), EMoDiR wishes to examine the discursive constructions and the socio-cultural practices of religious dissent. Its declared aims are the promotion of national and international research projects; organising seminars, meetings, conferences and workshops; publication of its own activities; supporting interdisciplinary and international collaboration; disseminating research carried out by the group; establishing research networks and scientific exchanges.
The network is a federation of scholars and institutions, among which, University of Verona (Dipartimento TeSIS), University of Venezia (Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici), École des Hautes Études en Science Sociales (EHESS, Centre de Recherches Historiques), University of Maryland – College Park (Department of History), University of Geneva (Institute d’Histoire de la Réformation) and Ruhr University of Bochum (Historisches Institut).
