Jan 28-30 Newberry Library 2016 Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference

January 28-30 | Newberry Library, Chicago, IL

Deadline: October 15, 2015

The library invites 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. We encourage submissions from disciplines as varied as the literature of any language, history, classics, anthropology, art history, music, comparative literature, theater arts, philosophy, political science, religious studies, transatlantic studies, disability studies, and manuscript studies. Because of the conference's multidisciplinary nature, all papers must be in English.

Eligibility: Proposals are accepted only from students at member institutions of the Center for Renaissance Studies consortium. Students who presented a paper at the previous year's conference are given lower priority, though they are still eligible to submit a proposal.

Deadline: Proposals must be submitted online, by midnight CDT Wednesday, October 15. Complete this online submission form. The organizers will meet by early November to select presenters to invite; we will notify everyone who submits an abstract of their decisions shortly after the meeting.
