Discipline Representatives

Discipline Representatives are elected every three years for twenty-five disciplines in Renaissance studies. Most disciplines have one representative, but the larger fields of History, History of Art and Architecture, and English Literature each have three representatives. Each member of the RSA selects a primary discipline group upon joining, but can join other groups as well.

These are the expectations for the position. First, and most importantly, a Discipline Representative will encourage and organize panels for the annual meeting, and submit them to the RSA submission site. Such panels will be accepted without further vetting as long as the panels comply with the RSA guidelines. Second, Discipline Representatives make up the Editorial Advisory Board for Renaissance Quarterly and are listed on the journal’s masthead; the Editorial Advisory Board is an invaluable resource for the RQ Articles Editor and the RQ Reviews Editor. Finally, some Discipline Representatives engage the members registered in their discipline through their discipline’s group pages on the RSA website. Discipline Representatives are convened by the Society’s President at the annual meeting and also attend a meeting with the RQ editors.

A Discipline Representative is elected for a three-year term and can, after consultation with the Board, run for a second term.
