Renaissance Conference of Southern California (RCSC)-Sponsored Panels for RSA Chicago

Renaissance Society of America Conference

Chicago, IL, USA March 21-23, 2024

CFP Deadline: August 1, 2023


As an Associate Organization of the Renaissance Society of America, RCSC will be sponsoring up to two sessions at next year’s RSA conference in Chicago. We seek proposals for complete panels on any subject of the Renaissance world. Please see the details below about what is expected to propose a panel, or consult the RSA conference website. 

Graduate Students (per RSA): The RSA welcomes graduate students who are currently working on completing their final degree program. Students participating in the conference should present material directly related to their advanced degree, not term papers. All session proposals must include at least one presenter or discussant who has received the PhD or other terminal degree in their field. Sessions composed entirely of predoctoral speakers will not be considered.  

Please be advised that all participants in the RSA conference are responsible for their own costs associated with travel, lodging, and registration, and must become members of the Renaissance Society of America. Participants in an RCSC-sponsored panel should also be members of RCSC. 

Please send your submission (the session proposal and the information about each paper presenter) to the current RCSC Vice President, Brittany Asaro (
