In preparation for the UNC-KCL conference in April 2016, the medieval and early modern studies graduate students in the Department of English and Comparative Literature are hosting a reading group for the 2015-2016 academic year. Keeping in line with the conference theme, readings and discussions will center on the relationship between early modern humanism and the humanities today.
