Memberships

    • Jan 2018 to Present Spanish and Portuguese Society for English Renaissance Studies
      The Spanish and Portuguese Society for English Renaissance Studies (SEDERI) has as its main aim to encourage scholarly research on the English language, as well as its literature, history and culture of the 16th and 17th centuries. Since its foundation in 1990 SEDERI has organized an annual conference in several Spanish and Portuguese Universities. Between 1990 and 2004 the association published the contents of these conferences in an annual proceedings volume. After that date the Proceedings have been replaced by a Yearbook featuring long articles, notes and book reviews on varied topics in Renaissance and Restoration studies. The SEDERI Yearbook has become a reference for English studies in the early modern period produced in Spain and Portugal. It also includes contributions by scholars worldwide. SEDERI encourages exchange between academics interested in this field of studies, as well as agreements with associations with similar interests. SEDERI counts among its members more than two hundred academics from several countries, and welcomes new members.
    • Jan 2013 to Present European Shakespeare Research Association
      The past two decades have witnessed a steadily growing interest among Shakespeareans to study the position of the playwright and poet in European culture from the earliest times to the present. Among other things, this interest has focused on the constitutive role that Shakespeare has played as an important factor of European identity. In order to define this role and the sense of European selfhood at various moments in the history of the Continent (including the British Isles), scholars have studied the shared memories going back to the Greeks and the Romans, but also the 400 years of Shakespearean appropriations, all against the objectives for a European federation based, in addition to economic and political goals, on explicit cultural ideals and objectives.
    • Apr 2011 to Present Sixteenth Century Society and Conference
      The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (SCSC) is a scholarly society that is interested in the early modern era (ca. 1450-ca. 1660). Our geographical scope is as worldwide as our membership. The society welcomes scholars from all disciplines who have an interest in early modern studies. The SCSC holds one annual meeting a year with approximately 170 sessions for papers. The annual meeting usually and traditionally takes place the last full weekend of October.
    • Sept 2010 to Present International Shakespeare Association
      The International Shakespeare Association is an umbrella organization to connect Shakespearians and Shakespeare societies around the world. A small committee of prominent Shakespearians, including John Russell Brown, O. B. Harrison, George Hibbard, and Levi Fox helped shape the association’s original objectives, including advising on the initiation and planning of World Shakespeare Congresses. The original executive committee, like all committees since, was made up of representatives from around the world.

      The ISA offers an opportunity for individuals and institutions to join together to further the knowledge of Shakespeare throughout the world. Its central commitments, outlined in the ISA constitution are to:
      advance the education of the public by furthering the study of Shakespeare's life and work by such means as the trustees determine
      organise, hold and promote participation in the World Shakespeare Congress and disseminate the learning from that event
      offer advice and assistance in the establishment of national or regional Shakespeare associations.

    • Sept 2007 to Present Renaissance Society of America
      The Renaissance Society of America is the largest international academic society devoted to the study of the era 1300–1700. Founded in 1954, the RSA has approximately 5,000 members around the country and the world. The RSA’s members can be found at universities and other institutions of higher education as faculty, graduate students, and postgraduate students, as well as at museums, libraries, and cultural institutions. Members also include independent scholars and others interested in Renaissance studies.
    • Sept 2003 to Present Modern Language Association
      The Modern Language Association promotes the study and teaching of languages and literatures through its programs, publications, annual convention, and advocacy work. The MLA exists to support the intellectual and professional lives of its members; it provides opportunities for members to share their scholarly work and teaching experiences with colleagues, discuss trends in the academy, and advocate humanities education and workplace equity. The association aims to advance the many areas of the humanities in which its members currently work, including literature, language, writing studies, screen arts, digital humanities, pedagogy, and library studies. The MLA facilitates scholarly inquiry in and across periods, geographic sites, genres, languages, and disciplines in higher education that focus on communication, aesthetic production and reception, translation, and interpretation.
    • Sept 1998 to Present Shakespeare Association of America
      The Shakespeare Association of America (SAA) is a non-profit professional organization for the advanced academic study of William Shakespeare’s plays and poems, his cultural and theatrical contexts, and the many roles these have played in world culture.
      Since its founding in 1972, the SAA has held annual conferences that convene in a different location each year, generally in late March or early April. SAA members meet to exchange ideas and strategies for reading, teaching, researching, and writing about topics of shared interest. Sessions at the meeting include seminars, workshops, panel presentations, round-table discussions, film screenings, theatrical performances, and teaching workshops.
      The distinguishing feature of the SAA conference is its program of working research seminars. The conference year begins each June with the announcement of a new roster of the seminars and workshops in which its members’ collaborative engagements will take place. All seminars and workshops entail significant work completed and circulated in advance of the conference, where enrolled participants share and discuss research papers, common readings, performance exercises, digital projects, and other academic undertakings. SAA seminars and workshops have proved to be uniquely effective forums in which to develop material for scholarly publication. They offer opportunities to try out ideas and receive useful responses. Many seminar papers subsequently appear in print, and seminar groups have often produced volumes of collected essays.
