The Center for Renaissance Studies’ annual graduate student conference, organized and run by advanced doctoral students, has become a premier opportunity for emerging scholars to present papers, participate in discussions, and develop collaborations across the field of medieval, Renaissance, and early modern studies in Europe, the Americas, and the Mediterranean world. Participants from a wide variety of disciplines find a supportive and collegial forum for their work, meet future colleagues from other institutions and disciplines, and become familiar with the Newberry and its resources.
Call for Papers
We invite abstracts for 20-minute papers from master’s or PhD students from any discipline on any medieval, Renaissance, or early modern topic in Europe, the Americas, or the Mediterranean world. The 2020 conference schedule will include workshops and sessions with rare books in addition to traditional conference sessions. Submit a proposal using this online form.
Deadline: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at midnight CDT
Eligibility: Preference is given to proposals from students at member institutions of the Center for Renaissance Studies consortium, but we welcome proposals from students of the Folger Institute consortium.
Conference participants and organizers from Center for Renaissance Studies consortium institutions may be eligible to apply for travel funds to attend CRS programs or to do research at the Newberry. Each member university sets its own policies and deadlines. Be sure to contact your Representative Council member in advance, as early as possible, for details.
