We are pleased to announce that registration for the 2018 conference is now open! Starting this year, we have moved to a graduated registration scale, which we hope will facilitate participation by delegates at all academic levels. Registration is always free for local high school students and undergraduates with ID, New College faculty and staff, Ringling Museum staff, and members of the program committee.

Status Pre-registration
(through 2/26)
 On-site registration
Full-time faculty  $125 $175 
Part-time, contingent, and retired faculty,
and independent scholars 
Graduate students  $50  $100 
 Local residents (non-academic)  $25

Online pre-registration—including lunch reservations, which can ONLY be made through this system—will be open through February 26, 2017. After February 27 only on-site registration will be available. Everyone attending the conference in an official role (presenter, chair, etc.) must register. If you will be accompanied by family members who would like to attend one or more of the receptions or organized activities without officially attending the conference, please contact the organizing committee.

Your registration fee provides access to all official conference events except for lunches and the Shakespeare in Love performance at the Asolo, which are priced separately.


A limited number of bursaries are available to help graduate students and/or international participants defray the costs of travel to the New College Conference. Those considering applying should be aware that bursaries are typically small (in the range of $50–300), so we encourage all applicants to pursue additional sources of funding. To be considered, please send an email by 15 January 2018 to with your name, scholarly affiliation, and funding status. All applicants will be notified of the results of their applications by the first week of February 2018.
