MaPs has concluded!

Hold on, you're being directed to our new site in seconds!

The Making Publics Project concluded officially with the end of our SSHRC MCRI Funding in December 2010. We're grateful to our many partners who supported our research, scholarly, and outreach endeavours between 2005 and 2010. MaPs has been an extremely successful project - and continues to inspire the work of many of those associated with it.

From here...

Because of the continuing interest in the work of the project, and the realization that the Project in many ways served to better articulate a vast research problematic and topic, the work continues. Rather than closing up shop, we're opening it up. The new Making Publics website ( This website is now an online community and research environment for the study of public life and forms of association in early modern Europe. It's open to everyone; we hope you join us there!
