THE DATE FOR THIS CONFERENCE HAS CHANGED. It will now be held one week later, on Saturday,
November 10, 2007.
The Massachusetts Center for Renaissance Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst will
host its annual graduate student conference on Saturday, November 10, 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.
