Dear Students, Colleagues, and Friends:

Welcome to the Designated Emphasis in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies’ website. Our D.E. builds on UC Berkeley’s traditional strengths in this period, and develops them in new and exciting ways. We hope this site is a useful resource to help you plan courses, attend talks and conferences, or simply keep posted on what we’re doing in our exciting program. Don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about our D.E. or the events we sponsor.

With best wishes for a good 2016 – 2017 academic year.
