¶ 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. The twenty-second New College Conference will be held 12–14 March 2020; we are delighted to announce that our plenary speakers will be Mary Floyd-Wilson, Bowman and Gordon Gray Distinguished Term Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and Jonathan Phillips, Professor of Crusading History at Royal Holloway, London.

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, 2018, 2020, 2022), 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 twenty-first biennial conference was held March 8–10, 2018, with plenaries by Eleonora Stoppino of the University of Illinois and Malcolm Vale of St John's College, Oxford.
