The University of Texas at Tyler
The 2nd College of Arts and Sciences Conference on Classical, Medieval, and Renaissance Studies will take place on Friday and Saturday, April 7th and 8th 2006 at The University of Texas at Tyler. The conference is intended to bring together students, faculty, and the local community to discuss a range of issues concerning the Classical, Medieval, and Renaissance periods, their continuing importance for us today. The conference is a wonderful opportunity for local people interested in earlier cultural traditions to meet and gain feedback from peers, scholars, and the wider community, as well as an chance to be exposed to the richness and diversity, and continuing relevance of those periods through panels, presentations, roundtables, displays, demonstrations, and musical and dramatic performances.
Abstracts from undergraduate, graduate students, faculty, and interested members of the community are encouraged on all topics concerning classical antiquity through the Renaissance. Papers or sessions on drama are particularly encouraged, as are comparative studies addressing the later influence of the classical, medieval, and renaissance periods on more recent aspects of British, American, or World culture. Proposals for all disciplines associated with the arts and humanities are encouraged. Sponsored by the UT Tyler College of Arts and Sciences and Humanities Texas.
