About the Program
Medieval and Renaissance culture (500-1660) lies at the root of most modern cultures of the Western world. The period has a profound impact on Western culture's current literature, philosophy, art, religion and politics. Studying the ideas of the Medieval and Renaissance periods gives us a clearer understanding of our present world, which is dominated by that culture's institutions.
Congratulations to Alicia Meyer who is a winner of the North American Conference on British Studies Undergraduate Essay Prize for her paper: "‘The Misfortunes of Jane Danyell’: A Tale of Devotion, Deceit, and Disaster in Early Modern England.” Well done Alicia!
