The Marco Institute for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (Tennessee)

"The Marco Institute for Medieval and Renaissance Studies evolved in the early 2000s out of the long-standing interdisciplinary program in Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the University of Tennessee". Catalyzed by a highly competitive Challenge Grant issues by the National Endowment for the Humanities in 2003, the Institute was able to create a "physical and academic center for these efforts in scholarship, education, outreach, and faculty and student development". The Institute is known for its Annual Marco Symposium that focuses on current "interdisciplinary issues in medieval and Renaissance scholarship which also have relevance and currency for the broader community".
