and Renaissance Studies will take place on Friday and Saturday, April 7th
and 8th 2006 at The University of Texas at Tyler. The conference is
intended to bring together students, faculty, and the local community to
discuss a range of issues concerning the Classical, Medieval, and
Renaissance periods as well as their continuing importance for us today.
It will provide a wonderful venue for those interested in earlier cultural
traditions to interact and gain greater exposure to the richness and
diversity of these periods through panels, presentations, roundtables,
displays, demonstrations, and musical and dramatic performances.

Abstracts from undergraduate, graduate students, faculty, and interested
members of the community are encouraged on all topics concerning classical
antiquity through the Renaissance. Papers or sessions on drama are
particularly encouraged, as are comparative studies addressing the later
influence of the classical, medieval, and renaissance periods on more
recent aspects of British, American, or World Literature.
