Renaissance Studies

Renaissance Studies is a multi-disciplinary program for faculty and graduate students who work on Renaissance and early modern materials from the 14th to the 17th century. The mission of the program is to foster dialogue and collaboration across disciplines, languages and traditions. Renaissance Studies organizes conferences, lecture series, symposia and roundtables. A Ph.D. minor or an area certificate in Renaissance Studies provides the multi-disciplinary education necessary to equip students for research on Renaissance and early modern topics.
