Dear Tulane Faculty,
I am delighted to announce that Tulane University has now joined the Newberry's Library Center for Renaissance Studies Consortium.
As the Director of the Center notes, "We still call ourselves a Center for 'Renaissance' Studies, but in fact our programming, supported by the Newberry's world-class research collections, ranges from the Middle Ages to the late 18th century. So we will be able to provide some exciting opportunities for Tulane graduate students and faculty working in many early humanities fields."
As the Consortium has a reciprocal agreement with the Folger Institute, it also provides a link to this organization.
I have inserted below information that spells out the benefits of belonging to the Consortium. I hope that many of you and your students will be able to benefit from our membership.
I would like to thank Mike Kuczynski of the Department of English for his willingness to serve as our faculty representative and the Provost for supporting this initiative.
Professor of History
Dean, School of Liberal Arts
Consortium travel funds may be used by participants and attendees for all Center programs, and for research trips to the Newberry, with the approval of the home institution's Newberry Committee/Representative Council member.
