Medieval and Renaissance Symposium

About the Symposium

This symposium is designed to take advantage of the great concentration of scholars in the Boston area who work on medieval and Renaissance topics. Its principal aim is to encourage discussion of recent or current research (including works in progress) in a congenial and fairly informal environment. Graduate students and faculty members of all area institutions are encouraged to participate as both speakers and discussants. Meetings are held at Boston University, are free and open to interested participants, and are generally followed by dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants in the area. Copies of articles to be discussed are normally distributed in advance.

If you would like to present research at the symposium, be added to the announcements list, or pose questions, please contact Sean Gallagher at:
