Early Modern Colloquium

To stay informed about the EMC’s many events, please contact the Graduate Coordinator to be added to our list-serve and Canvas page.

The Early Modern Colloquium is an interdisciplinary group based in the English Department that hosts conversations between faculty and doctoral students working on early modern/Renaissance cultures from a variety of academic disciplines and departments.

Founded in 2000, the EMC is administered by advanced graduate students, with the support of faculty. EMC presenters include Northwestern faculty, graduate students, and faculty from other universities. The group builds on the extraordinarily strong early modern presence in Northwestern’s Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and other schools and brings into dialogue participants from Art History, Comparative Literature, English, French and Italian, Gender and Sexuality Studies, German, History, Musicology, Philosophy, Poetry and Poetics, Political Science, Spanish and Portuguese, Theatre and Drama, and other departments and programs.
