Call for proposals: The Renaissance Society of America’s Graduate Student Advisory Committee
The Renaissance Society of America’s Graduate Student Advisory Committee is pleased to launch the Online Graduate Student Lightning Talk Series with its inaugural session on Expanding the Renaissance, taking place on 3 December 2020.
As scholars and students of Renaissance Studies, as the RSA Statement in Support of Social Justice states, we “have structured a Western European world view that has excluded or abused people of color.” In acknowledgment of this and other elements of exclusion in Renaissance Studies, the RSA Student Community seeks to expand our understanding of the Renaissance (1300–1700) by hosting lightning talks that address topics, sources, or methodologies that are commonly excluded or overlooked from mainstream narratives. The talks will be followed by a brief discussion and Q&A. Graduate students of all stages are invited to contribute.
Please submit your name, proposed title, and a short description (max. 150 words) via the RSA Online Graduate Student Lightning Talk Series Application Form by Friday, October 30.
Students will be notified of accepted submissions on Friday, November 13. The first online lightning talks session will take place on Thursday, December 3 at 12 PM ET.
