Call for Submissions

The Renaissance Society of America warmly invites submissions for its 67th Annual Meeting, to be held in Dublin, Ireland on 7–10 April 2021. The Convention Centre Dublin will serve as the site of our conference headquarters, with sessions also held at premier cultural and scholarly institutions such as the Chester BeattyMarsh's Library, and the Royal Irish Academy. We are delighted to announce that the Dublin conference has been expanded to four days instead of three, to accommodate more presenters and allow plenty of time for special events and visits to the city's museums and archives. Rooms at a selection of hotels near the Convention Centre will be available. The options will be posted in early fall. The deadline for conference registration is 31 December 2020.

No matter what transpires over the next several months, the RSA will hold its Annual Meeting in 2021—either in Dublin or virtually. Our Society's board of directors and staff will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and related events, maintaining close contact with our collaborators in Ireland. If circumstances render it unsafe or impossible for a large group to meet in Dublin next spring, we will cancel the meeting no later than 1 February 2021 and convert it into a virtual conference. This virtual meeting would not be compressed into the exact same four days, so as to accommodate people located in different time zones.
