The university will host the 64th annual meeting of the Southeastern Renaissance Conference on Oct. 12-13. This year’s meeting features 15 presentations on a variety of topics in Renaissance studies, including papers focusing on religion, drama, political history and authorship. UGA will welcome scholars from several states as well as from institutions across Georgia. Registration is $17.50.

The conference is the second oldest regional Renaissance conference in the U.S., founded during World War II and currently including more than 300 members.

Jointly sponsored by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke University, North Carolina State University and the University of South Carolina at Columbia, the conference meets annually at universities in the Southeast and publishes Renaissance Papers, a journal that includes a selection of each year’s papers.
