Thank you for attending! The recording will be available next week. 

The Renaissance is famously described as an era of rebirth, the creation of a new world at the end of the Middle Ages. But what exactly does this mean and how did it occur? This seminar explores the many inventions and reinventions of the Renaissance from the first figures who advanced the idea of a middle age between antiquity and their own, to the modern art museums which transform pre-modern political claims about a Renaissance golden age into modern claims that affect how audiences around the world understand our past and present.

This program is co-sponsored by Stanford Continuing Studies and the University of Chicago Graham School. The session will be recorded and a video link will be shared following the event.
