New College Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies
8-10 March 2012
The eighteenth biennial New College Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies will take place 8–10 March 2012 in Sarasota, Florida. The program committee invites 250-word abstracts of proposed twenty-minute papers on topics in European and Mediterranean history, literature, art, and religion from the fourth to the seventeenth centuries. Interdisciplinary work is particularly appropriate to the conference’s broad historical and disciplinary scope. Planned sessions are welcome.
The conference will be held on the campus of New College of Florida, the honors college of the Florida state system. The college, located on Sarasota Bay, is adjacent to the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, which will offer tours arranged for conference participants. Sarasota is noted for its beautiful public beaches, theater, art and music. The average temperatures in March are a pleasant high of 77F (25C) and a low of 57F (14C).
More information will be posted on the conference website as it becomes available, including plenary speakers, conference events, and area attractions: http://faculty.ncf.edu/medievalstudies
