Renaissance Colloquium

Welcome!

Welcome to Harvard English Department's Renaissance Colloquium!

We are a group of graduate students who meet every one to two weeks to discuss current work in Renaissance and Early Modern literary studies. Joined by faculty and occasionally visited by leading critics, we converse about research and events in the field, share our work, hold panels and roundtables about the profession, and provide a forum for the discussion and exploration of Renaissance texts. All grad students--regardless of their own primary fields of study--are welcome to join us for any meeting of the colloquium.

If you have any questions or wish to join our mailing list, don't hesitate to contact the coordinators for 2016-2017: William Porter (wporter@fas.harvard.edu) and Hudson Vincent (rvincent@g.harvard.edu).
