GEMCS was formed in 1993 to promote the study of culture from the
Renaissance to the mid-nineteenth century (and sometimes later), in its
various forms and across disciplinary boundaries. We are comprised of
people working in a wide range of disciplines, including but not limited
to literature, history, art history, music, and film, and we welcome a
wide variety of disciplinary approaches, in an attempt to promote and
provide a forum for the exchange of ideas among junior as well as more
senior scholars.
