The emphasis of this workshop is on a multidisciplinary study of English and Continental culture during the Renaissance, in areas such as literature, politics, theology, and natural science. Our interests include early modern poetry, prose, and drama, humanist pedagogy, politics and law, theological controversy, book history, the literature of trade and exploration, the history of the emotions, and much more. Student presentations in the form of article drafts, dissertation proposals or chapters, practice job interview presentations, and practice campus visit talks are given priority. We also host scholars from other institutions and hear from members of Chicago’s faculty. The workshop convenes once every few Mondays at 5:00pm in Rosenwald 405, with noted exceptions due to presenters’ schedules. Please join us and feel free to contact the workshop coordinators with any questions.
