MARC is NYU’s interdisciplinary center for the study of the Medieval and Renaissance world. MARC brings together faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates from all over NYU to share research and ideas in a variety of formal and informal settings. Participating faculty and students represent eleven different departments and schools within NYU. We are particularly proud of the work that our interdisciplinary graduate student group, MARGIN, does to bring students and faculty together outside of the classroom.
MARC offers both an undergraduate minor and a major. Our undergraduates have a strong record for winning awards, including most recently the prize for best senior thesis in the humanities division of CAS. Our graduate program offers a Graduate Concentration in Medieval and Renaissance Studies to PhD students enrolled in participating departments.
Each semester we host a series of public lectures by distinguished scholars in Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Our annual conference in the Spring is now a long-standing tradition that brings scholars from all over the world to NYU. MARGIN also organizes and hosts events around an annual theme. These include a monthly workshop and a graduate symposium in May. To receive notifications about these and other upcoming events at MARC, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org asking to subscribe to our list.
The Center has an active Advisory Board and projects or programs that might further its mission can also be brought to their attention. The Board's current members are:
Dennis Geronimus (Art History)
Jane Tylus (Italian)
Carolyn Dinshaw (Social and Cultural Analysis)
Andrew J. Romig (Gallatin)
Helen S. Kay (French)
Christopher Wood (German)
Martha Rust (English)
The Center is capably and professionally supported by our wonderful administrator, Leydi Rofman and our Graduate Assistant, Juliana Amorim Goskes.
I hope to see you at one of our events.
