Renaissance Studies End-of-Year Roundtable and Reception
Friday, December 8th, 4-6pm
College Arts and Humanities Institute (CAHI)
1211 East Atwater Avenue (Corner of Ballantine and Atwater)

Please join us for the 9th roundtable featuring the exciting work of advanced graduate students from a wide variety of disciplines, exploring issues of general interest to scholars of Renaissance and early modern studies. The roundtable will begin at 4pm with brief presentations by each of the panelists followed by Q&A, before we continue the exchange at the reception. The panelists are:

Christina Cole (Spanish and Portuguese), “Lope de Vega’s Wonderful Re-Presentation of Spanish History on Stage”
(Dissertation project: “Marvelous Performances: The Emotion of Wonder in Early Modern Spanish Literature”)

Lino Mioni (French and Italian), “From the Kitchen to the Book Shop: The Case of Maestro Martino’s Libro de Arte Coquinaria
(Dissertation project: “From Manuscript to Print to Digital Representation: Maestro Martino’s Libro de Arte Coquinaria”)

Mary Helen Truglia (English), “Wrothful Writing: Mixing Genres in Lady Mary Wroth’s The Countess of Montgomery’s Urania”)
(Dissertation project: “‘With Time, who promised to reveal’: The Interplay of Genre and Gender in Early Modern England”)

This will be a great chance to meet faculty and graduate students working in other disciplines. We will also advertise the Renaissance Studies minor and certificate, and announce our events planned for 2018. The event would not have been possible without the generous support from the College of Arts and Sciences, the Mary-Margaret Barr Koon Fund of the Department of French and Italian and the Departments of English and of Spanish and Portuguese.
