Welcome to the website of the New College Conference on Medieval & Renaissance Studies. The Conference is a biennial event covering all aspects of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The twentieth biennial conference was held March 10–12, 2016, with plenary presentations by Paula Findlen (Stanford University) and Claire Sponsler (University of Iowa). For a full list of past plenary speakers, please click here.
The Conference is generally held on the second weekend of March in even years (that is, 2012, 2014, 2016), although we occasionally adjust the date to avoiding overlap with other spring conferences such as the Medieval Academy, the Renaissance Society of America, and the Shakespeare Association.
The Conference is held in the Sudakoff Conference Center on the historic bayfront campus of New College of Florida, the honors liberal arts college of the Florida State University System. New College is located on the Gulf coast in Sarasota, next door to the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art.
