What is "reform" in 2017? On the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's Ninety-Five Theses and the birth of the Protestant Reformation, this two-day symposium at Southern brings together an interdisciplinary group of early modern scholars to ask what the legacy is of the religious reform movements of the 16th century in the cultural reform movements of the 21st century -- from legal and political reform, to more radical prospects for change and toleration in an era of global warming and democratic upheaval.
