Renaissance Colloquium

The Renaissance Colloquium is committed to providing a forum for graduate students, faculty, and visiting scholars to gather and discuss current topics in early modern studies. We invite speakers from neighboring institutions and further afield to present their research in a collegial setting that encourages questions and discussion. In recent years, we have hosted scholars including Colin Burrow, Richard Halpern, Victoria Kahn, Rhodri Lewis, Molly Murray, and numerous others.
