EMIG provides a student-run forum for the exchange of ideas related to the period between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries. The group serves as a bridge between the Renaissance Studies Certificate Program, Departments at 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 at The Graduate Center, CUNY during the academic year.
