The Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society will be holding their 57th annual Renaissance conference at Saint Martin's University from October 17-19, 2013.
Meeting every year for over sixty years, the conference was conceived as a vehicle to promote scholarship in early modern studies. The PNRS treats "Renaissance" more generously than merely British Literary Studies 1500-1660 and seeks to work actively with all Northwest scholars of European and transatlantic culture and society from 1300-1700, including art historians, economists, historians, scholars of religion, theatre historians and practitioners, scholars in the history of science and medicine, political scientists, and comparatists.
Associated with the Renaissance Society of America, the core of the society members come from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana in the States and British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan in Canada. The conference is held alternately in Canada and the United States and is open to all scholars and graduate students from North America.
Traditionally the conference features two plenary speakers (speakers in the past have included Stephen Greenblatt, Barbara Lewalski, and Alexander Leggatt), up to twenty sessions of three to four papers each, a reception and a business lunch.
Discount rates ($90.20 per night for October 17th, 18th, and 19th) are available at the Ramada Hotel, 4520 Martin Way East, Olympia, WA.
