More information on Philadelphia 2020 

The 66th Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America will be held in Philadelphia, 2–4 April 2020 (Thursday to Saturday). The meeting will be held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown and the Notary Hotel.

Your conference registration fee helps to pay for such expenses as the software to manage the conference submissions and generate the program, the mobile app, the rental of A/V equipment and the wages of the techs who set it up and trouble-shoot it, the WiFi in the conference meeting rooms, security for the book exhibit, and the year-round staff time required to organize and run the conference. By agreeing to occupy a large number of sleeping rooms and order a minimum amount of catering at the hotel, we are fortunate to receive steep discounts on the rental of meeting rooms.

We are pleased to announce that due to careful budgeting, the registration rates for Philadelphia 2020 remain at the same level where they have been for the past four years, with no increase.


The RSA 2020 Philadelphia Annual Meeting program will be made available before the conference in three formats:

  1. Online (at
