Georgetown University is a fully-affiliated member of the Folger Institute, a center for advanced study and research in Early Modern European Studies sponsored by the Folger Shakespeare Library and a consortium of colleges and universities.
The Institute offers a full program of seminars, colloquia, workshops and conferences convened by scholars of international note. As a member of the Institute, Georgetown offers its faculty and graduate students the opportunity to join other faculty and students from major universities in taking these offerings. In the case of graduate students, they may take them for credit.
Offerings for the entire academic year are announced in the spring of the preceding year. Descriptions and applications are available from the Georgetown member of the Institute's Executive Committe Professor Lena Orlin, Department of English. Ordinarily, applications must be made during the semester preceding the seminar, particularly if a grant in aid is requested. Notices are circulated on campus, and the Institute's website lists the various offerings along with their deadlines.
