Dear Students, Colleagues, and Friends:

It’s a great pleasure to welcome you to the Website of the UC Berkeley Designated Emphasis in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies. Berkeley has long been known for scholarly excellence in this area and it is rewarding to see a new interdisciplinary program that builds on our traditional strengths and develops them in exciting ways. I hope that this site can become a useful resource for scholars, students, pilgrims, travelers, and readers with an interest in the field.

Welcome and best wishes,
Victoria Kahn
Director, Designated Emphasis in
Renaissance and Early Modern Studies
