¶ Welcome!

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. We are delighted to announce that the twenty-first New College Conference will be held 8–10 March 2018, with plenary presentations by Eleonora Stoppino (University of Illinois, Urbana–Champaign) and Malcolm Vale (St John's College, Oxford).

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.

We generally schedule the Conference for the second weekend of March in even years (that is, 2014, 2016, 2018), 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 twentieth biennial conference was held March 10–12, 2016, with plenaries by Paula Findlen of Stanford University and Claire Sponsler of the University of Iowa.
