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 $170 per delegate registration fee ($100 student fee). The registration fee is used to pay for conference facilities and general events. By paying the fee, delegates become members in the SCSC (for the year following the conference) and receive the Sixteenth Century Journal.


Future conferences:

  • 22-25 October 2015: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
  • 18-20 August 2016: Bruges, Belgium
