Based at the Department of French, Hispanic and Italian Studies of UBC, we are a research cluster in pre-1800—Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern—Romance languages and literatures; we started in 2009.
→ A PRACTICAL UPDATE: This site is moving from wordpress.com (earlyromance.com) to UBC Blogs (blogs.ubc.ca/earlyromance). Rest assured: the entire old site has been duplicated there. Posts from November 2009 through August 2015 may include links that refer back to the old site.
→ Caveat on this site, regarding security and privacy (internet browsers, service providers, WordPress)
→ Further details on the Cluster and its activities, how to stay up-to-date with its goings-on, and how contact us
→ More on the Early Romance area within the Department
