Fall 2020

We are delighted to announce the schedule for fall 2020, designed to deepen and contextualize our understanding of the Renaissance. We 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. Please email in advance for the papers if you are not already on our campus distribution list and would like to attend (contact information below).

If you plan to attend a fall 2020 or spring 2021 seminar, please contact Gabrielle Ponce-Hegenauer. Papers can only be made available by pdf with the express permission of the author. We ask that participants exercise the utmost discretion and confidentiality with the speaker’s work. Please refrain from circulation of any form. Many thanks.
