George Washington Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute (DC)

"The GW [George Washington] Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute was founded in 2008 by faculty and students in English, History and Romance Languages". The mission of the institute is "to bring fresh critical perspectives to the study of the literature and culture of early Europe within a global perspective, connecting the past to the present". The institute focuses on the entangled and worldly connections of the period that developed its international character. The institute therefore works to broaden the basis of Early Modern studies to include research initiatives focused outside of England. The institute is committed to being an open space where all scholars have access to information.
