Associate Organizations

RSA Associate Organizations play an important role in the Society. Associate Organizations sponsor sessions in their fields of expertise at the RSA Annual Meeting. A representative from each Associate Organization serves on the RSA Council, one function of which is to promote professional development in Renaissance studies. 

Each Associate Organization has one RSA representative: the representative must be an RSA member in good standing and is responsible for organizing and submitting sponsored conference sessions. Associate Organizations are asked to send a representative to the annual Council meeting, which is held during the RSA Annual Meeting, at least once every two years.

All Associate Organizations are learned societies or research centers whose goals are consistent with the mission of the RSA.

For information about applying for associate status, please contact Nicholas Terpstra (nicholas.terpstra [at], Chair of Associate Organizations and International Cooperation. Associate Organizations do not pay a separate membership fee to RSA. Applications are first approved by the RSA Board of Directors and then presented to the RSA Council.

Below is a list of active RSA Associate Organizations with the current representative. Associate Organizations: please contact the RSA office if the representative has changed.

A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | I | J | L |M | N | P | R | S | T | U | V | Y
