About the Group:
The Early Modern Colloquium is an interdisciplinary organization run by graduate students at the University of Michigan. The purposes of the group are to stimulate the early modern scholarly community at the University of Michigan; to facilitate conversations between students, faculty, visiting scholars and members of various departments within the university; and to forground new approaches to studying early modern literatures and cultures. Open meetings, conferences, lectures, and workshops are held throughout the year.
About the Website:
The Early Modern Colloquium has created this website to provide a stimulating and collaborative
environment for the interdisciplinary study of early modern literatures and cultures. The resources section features an annotated webliography of up-to-date sites dedicated to medieval and early modern materials and quick links to useful sites at the University, including the Oxford English Dictionary, the Middle English Dictionary, and e-texts posted by the Humanities Text Initiative. Information and links to departments, organizations, classes, and professors concerned with medieval and early modern literature, art, music, history, and culture help create a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment. This website is a public space - developed with the intention of creating an online neighborhood of medieval and early modern scholars - and will be maintained by the members of the Early Modern Colloquium. If you would like to suggest a web resource, or if you have a comment, please contact the webmaster.
