As executive director of the Renaissance Society of America, I provide leadership for an international scholarly society with 4,000 members. I work with the RSA’s board of directors and represent the RSA to the broader educational and public humanities community. The RSA publishes Renaissance Quarterly, the leading US-based journal in Renaissance studies (1300-1700); holds an annual conference in North America or Europe; and sponsors fellowships, professional development programs, and virtual gatherings. I coordinate the Society’s operations: personnel, governance, finance, development, communications, programs, and publications.
