The Sixteenth Century Society and Conference encourages the participation of international scholars and warmly welcomes early career researchers and postgraduates to the academic community.  The SCSC is a not-for-profit scholarly organization and therefore receives no governmental or institutional funding.  In order to participate in this conference, delegates or their sponsoring institutions or organizations will need to fund travel and lodging expenses in addition to a non-refundable registration fee ($225 per delegate, and $110 for registered students).  For an additional administrative charge, registration may also be completed at the meeting.  The fee supports conference facilities, general events at the conference, membership in the Society, and one year’s subscription to the Sixteenth Century Journal.
