Dissertation Seminar for Lit Scholars at Newberry (5/15/13 deadline)

The Newberry Center for Renaissance Studies announces its
2013 Dissertation Seminar for Literary Scholars
Directed by Wendy Wall and William West, both of Northwestern University

Application deadline: May 15, 2013
Seminar will meet September 27, October 18, November 15, and December 6, 2013

This seminar aims to create a broad-based community of graduate students at the beginning stages of work on their dissertations in early modern literature. The goal of the seminar will be to offer comments, perspectives, methods, and criticisms from a larger group of specialists than would be available on any single campus, and to encourage broader and deeper use of the unique resources of the Newberry Library and the Center for Renaissance Studies.

Enrollment limited to 12 students who have completed all examinations and achieved ABD status by the time of the seminar; participants will be selected by competitive application.
