The Center for Renaissance Studies at the Newberry Library will be hosting its annual Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference on 27-29 January 2022. The conference is normally held in person, but will be held online viz Zoom due to the current wave of Covid.
Graduate students in History, Art History, English, World Languages and Cultures, Music History, Religious Studies, and other disciplines who are interested in Renaissance Studies are invited to participate.
This conference has a great track record at providing opportunities for graduate students to present their research in Renaissance Studies and also learn about professional development issues in the field. The conference also allows graduate students from diverse humanities disciplines at different universities to share ideas and experiences.
I strongly encourage graduate students in History at Northern Illinois University to participate in this excellent conference. NIU is a member of the Center for Renaissance Studies Consortium.
Here is the announcement from the Center for Renaissance Studies:
2022 Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference
January 27-29, 2022
Online via Zoom
CRS encourages all who are able to attend the all-virtual 2022 Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference.
This annual graduate student conference, organized and run by advanced doctoral students, has become a premier opportunity for emerging scholars to present papers, participate in discussions, and develop collaborations across all fields of medieval, Renaissance, and early modern studies. Participants from a wide variety of disciplines find a supportive and collegial forum for their work, meet future colleagues from other institutions and disciplines, and become familiar with the Newberry and its resources. Conference programming will include professionalization sessions and rare book presentations in addition to the workshops and conference panels.
Although the 2022 conference program had been scheduled to include both virtual and in-person sessions, the recent surge in Covid-19 cases has prompted us to shift all programming to a virtual format.
The 2022 Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference is free and open to the public. Registration is not required, and sessions will be accessible using the Zoom links in the posted schedule. Sessions without links included will be limited to conference participants only.
