Fall 2019

As you know, 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the Wesleyan Renaissance Seminar. I am delighted to announce the schedule for fall 2019, designed to deepen and contextualize our understanding of the Renaissance. I hope you will be able to join us for lively discussion of issues that invigorate our various fields. As is our custom, the seminar meetings are entirely devoted to discussion of previously circulated papers.
