Event: Medieval and Renaissance Studies in the 21st Century, UCLA

Date: 24-25 January 2014

In Fall 2013, the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (CMRS) began its 51st year. It’s a time to consider not only where CMRS has been and what it has accomplished, but also where the Center—and the discipline of Medieval and Renaissance Studies—are headed. In an era when the importance of humanistic studies has been questioned and funding for the Humanities has dwindled, how can we demonstrate the value of studying the Middle Ages and Renaissance and the relevance of such study to our contemporary world? This conference brings together internationally renowned scholars, including the directors and leaders of other distinguished Medieval and Renaissance Studies centers, institutions, and organizations, as well as many of CMRS’s own past directors, to consider these issues.
