Call for Papers: 2016 Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference
Submission deadline: October 15
Conference dates: January 28 to 30, 2016
We invite 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.
For all these programs, students from Center for Renaissance Studies consortium schools ( http://www.newberry.org/center-renaissance-studies-consortium-members) have priority, in accordance with the consortium agreement. Fees are waived for students from consortium institutions. Such students may be eligible to apply for travel funds to attend ( http://www.newberry.org/newberry-renaissance-consortium-grants). Each member university sets its own policies, limitations, and deadlines, and some may limit eligibility to certain departments or units within the institution; contact your Representative Council member in advance for details.
