The twenty-second New College Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies will be held 12–14 March 2020 on the campus of New College of Florida, on the shores of Sarasota Bay. The program committee invites 250-word abstracts of proposed twenty-minute papers on topics in European and Mediterranean history, literature, art, music and religion from the fourth to the seventeenth centuries. Interdisciplinary work is particularly appropriate to the conference’s broad historical and disciplinary scope. Planned sessions are also welcome. The deadline for all abstracts is 1 October, 2019; please see the submission guidelines on the conference website (  Our plenary speakers will be Mary Floyd-Wilson, Bowman and Gordon Gray Distinguished Term Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and Jonathan Phillips, Professor of Crusading History at Royal Holloway, London.  

Junior scholars whose abstracts are accepted are encouraged to submit their papers for consideration for the Snyder Prize (named in honor of conference founder Lee Snyder), which carries an honorarium of $400. Please see the "Snyder Prize" section of the conference website for further information.
