Publications

The European Research Council supports the principle of open access as a fundamental part of its mission. During the course of the project, we publish a wide range of academic and popular articles and books around early modern popular groups and their fashions, and most of them are available here and on our institute's repository. To read what we are currently working on, visit our blog.
