Graduate students are hybrid creatures in academia: we are both educators and students, innovators and learners. As we strive to master the foundational knowledges of our disciplines, we also challenge preconceptions, explore neglected or newly discovered areas, rethink our assumptions; ultimately, we create new knowledge.
This year, the Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization (EGSO) warmly invites our colleagues from all disciplines to share the ways in which they are revising, reforming, and recreating accepted disciplinary knowledge to form the next generation of scholarship. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches and also encourage proposals from traditional humanities.

From the beginning, conceptualizations of the Renaissance have been concerned with borders: between the classical past and the modern present; between pagan and Christian; between the civilized and the barbarous. Even as the idea of the Renaissance has endured various critiques over the past half century, this attention to borders has only intensified. In current debates about secularization and periodization in Renaissance studies, the boundaries between past and present and between the sacred and the profane have taken on a newly charged intensity.
