The Renaissance & Early Modern Working Group is an interdisciplinary group for graduate students who are working in or who are interested in, generally, the Renaissance and Early Modern periods, or environs 1500-1750. We host a variety of events, including informal seminars with faculty, visiting lecturers, graduate student workshops, game nights, and even field trips to local institutions. A typical favorite is our EEBO show-and-tell night.Our intention for the 2016-2017 academic year is to sponsor a speaker series as well as regular bi-weekly meetings. Our goal is a group that acts as a useful, informal forum for graduate students to share their own research interests and progress, as well as a group that will ultimately try to host field trips to see theater productions, academic and professional libraries, etc. Our faculty advisors are Chris Wood and Juliet Fleming.
