The SCSC, a not-for-profit scholarly organization, receives no governmental or institutional funding. In order to participate in this conference, delegates or their sponsoring institution/organization will need to fund their own travel and lodging expenses in addition to a $195 per delegate registration fee (or discounted student fee). Please note that the fee will increase to $205 after June 1, 2016. The registration fee is used to pay for conference facilities and general events. By paying the fee, delegates become members in the SCSC and receive the Sixteenth Century Journal.

Future conferences:

  • 18-20 August 2016: Bruges, Belgium
  • 26-29 October 2017: Milwaukee, Wisconsin
