The Massachusetts Center for Renaissance Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst will
host its annual graduate student conference on Saturday, October 18 and Sunday, October 19,

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.
