For 51 years, the TRRC has presented for Southern Ontario a lecture series on Renaissance and early modern topics, as well as organized panels and supported small conferences. An independent organization with no institutional budget of its own, TRRC depends on memberships to mount its programs. Your contribution helps us sustain our activities for the benefit of a wide community of scholars and students, specialists and those with general interest. We appreciate your support. We  ask you therefore please to fill out and send in the membership form attached HERE and return it to Konrad Eisenbichler. Our yearly dues are very modest, so perhaps you could pay for three years (2015-2018) at once and really help us to plan well for the future.

Thank you!

The TRRC steering committee for 2015-16: Elizabeth Cohen (Chair),  Konrad Eisenbichler (Secretary-Treasurer), Germaine Warkentin (Past Chair), William Bowen, David Goldstein.
