The New College Conference on Medieval & Renaissance studies


The New College Conference on Medieval & Renaissance Studies is a biennial event covering all aspects of the European, Mediterreanean, and Near Eastern worlds from approximately 400 CE to 1700 CE. The Conference is held on the historic bayfront campus of New College of Florida, the honors liberal arts college of Florida's State University System.

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.

—Co-Chairs Carrie Beneš (History) and Nova Myhill (English)
