Viator: Medieval and Renaissance Studies invites you to celebrate its soon-to-be 50th year of publication. Viator was founded at UCLA’s Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies by Lynn White jr., Richard A. Rouse, and Henry Ansgar Kelly, and its first volume appeared in 1970. It publishes articles of distinction in any field of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, viewed broadly as the period between late antiquity and the mid-seventeenth century. In keeping with its title (homo viator: “voyager,” “wayfarer,” “pilgrim”), the journal gives special consideration to articles that cross frontiers, focusing on meetings between cultures, pursuing an idea through the centuries, or employing methods of different disciplines simultaneously, while remaining accessible to the non-specialist reader. Come enjoy some wine and hors d’oeuvres while learning about our prestigious journal.
Will you be at the Renaissance Society of America Meeting in Toronto this year? Join us as we celebrate fifty years of our journal, Viator, on Monday, March 18 at 7:30 PM in the Sheraton Centre Toronto VIP Room. We hope you can join the festivities!
