>EMIG  provides a forum for the exchange of ideas related to the period
>between the  fourteenth and seventeenth centuries. The group serves 
>as a bridge
>between the  English Department of the Graduate Center (CUNY) and 
>the Renaissance
>Studies  Association, while also serving the larger community of humanities
>scholars with  an interest in this period. By emphasizing connections between
>developments in  philosophy, theology, politics, rhetoric, law, science,
>sociology, theater,  music, literature, and the visual arts during 
>this important
>period, EMIG  engages scholars from many academic disciplines. In doing so, we
>hope to broaden  not only our knowledge of the period, but our scholarly
>approaches as well. EMIG meets monthly at the Graduate Center, City 
>University of New
>York during  the academic year.
