The Early Modern Colloquium at Northwestern University hosts a series of interdisciplinary conversations on scholarly work in progress by faculty and doctoral students working on early modern/Renaissance cultures from a variety of academic disciplines and departments.
EMC presenters include Northwestern faculty, graduate students, and faculty from other universities. The group builds on the extraordinarily strong early modern faculty presence in Northwestern's Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and other schools, and brings into dialogue faculty and doctoral participants from Art History, English, French and Italian, History, Musicology, Political Science, Spanish, Theatre and Drama, and other departments. Distinguished visiting faculty have included Marjorie Garber (Harvard), Stephen Orgel (Stanford), Juliet Fleming (Cambridge), David Lee Miller (South Carolina), Nigel Smith (Princeton), Peter Stallybrass (Penn), Bruce Smith (USC), Lynn Enterline (Vanderbilt), Bradin Cormack (Chicago), and many others.
Founded in 2000 and based in the English department, the EMC is funded with generous support from the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, the Humanities Institute, and The Graduate School. The Colloquium is administered by advanced graduate students, with the support of faculty.
