The emphasis of the workshop is on cross-disciplinary study of English and European culture during the Renaissance, in areas such as literature, art, politics, theology, and natural science. Our interests include early modern poetry, prose, and drama, humanist pedagogy, politics and law, theological controversy, book history, the literature of trade and exploration, the history of the emotions, and much more. Student presentation in the form of article drafts, dissertation proposals or chapters, practice job interview presentations and practice campus visit talks are given priority. We will also meet with scholars from other institutions and hear from members of Chicago’s faculty. The workshop meets on alternate Mondays at 5:00 p.m. in Rosenwald 405.
