Medieval/Renaissance Colloquium
Research Group

The Medieval-Renaissance Colloquium was founded by the Graduate English Department at Rutgers to bring together an intellectual community of students and scholars working within the Medieval period, the Renaissance, and the Reformation. We offer various events throughout the year: from coordinating dissertation and article workshops, to hosting critically acclaimed speakers, to organizing reading groups on contemporary scholarship. We aim to create events that will generate lively discussions about the literary, historical, and cultural works from the Medieval and Early Modern periods and to offer a congenial environment in which scholars can exchange ideas. This year we seek to highlight to all of the scholarly and professional resources that Rutgers has to offer. Our fall workshop will feature the wealth of early modern documents in the Rutgers rare books collection. And in the spring, we're honoring Rutgers scholars' contributions to the field with a roundtable featuring faculty in Early Modern Studies from across the humanities.
