Call for Papers 2020 

The Southeastern Renaissance Conference (SRC) invites submissions for our 77th annual conference, which will be hosted by Mercer University on October 16-17 of 2020. Papers can be on any aspect of Renaissance literature, history, philosophy, music, art, or culture. SRC is unique in that we require full essays (2,500 words maximum). Submissions to our conference are also considered for publication in Renaissance Papers, the SRC’s scholarly journal. Renaissance Papers publishes both the best papers presented at the conference and excellent essays that were submitted for presentation but not selected because of the volume of papers we receive. Renaissance Papers is peer reviewed and is included in the MLA Bibliography

For consideration for the 2020 conference, papers should be submitted via our submission portal by June 7, 2020. Please forward any questions to SRC Secretary-Treasurer Melissa J. Rack  at

The SRC accepts papers on all subjects relating to the Renaissance and is attended by scholars all over North America and Europe.
