The Massachusetts Center for Renaissance Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst will
host its annual graduate student conference on Saturday, November 3, 2007. Graduate students are
invited to submit abstracts for a ten to fifteen minute paper on any range of topics or approaches,
including textual studies, performance history, philosophy, print culture, religious studies, gender
studies, post-colonial interpretations, and other new theoretical perspectives. The purpose of the
conference is to provide graduate students with an opportunity to share their work and place it in a
greater context of interests and concerns. The conference is designed to foster conversation among
students who share similar challenges and construct a space where participants may expect serious
feedback on their work.
