STVDIO Seminar Series

The STVDIO series of research seminars promotes the collaborative, interdisciplinary study of the Renaissance in the UK and internationally, and aims to showcase the rich variety of work that is done on Renaissance topics, both at Warwick and beyond. Seminars are to be held in person, at the University of Warwick, on Tuesdays at 17:00 (UK time) unless otherwise specified below.

To express an interest / register to attend, please complete the very brief form here (or via link, top left of page). This will guide us in terms of providing an adequately sized room for the events, and of course ensure that we have enough of the all important refreshments. The deadline for registration is Monday afternoon, 24 hours before the seminar.
