At the spring meeting of the Andrew Marvell Society, held at the South-Central Renaissance Conference in Corpus Christi, Texas, on Saturday, March 20, 2010, the organization unanimously approved the proposal to apply for affiliate status with the Renaissance Society of America. With the affiliation, the Marvell Society now enjoys the opportunity to organize up to eight sessions at RSA conferences, though there is no minimum requirement. All presenters at the RSA Marvell sessions would be expected to join RSA and pay the conference fee. One representative of the society would be expected to serve on the Council of RSA, attending at least one council meeting every two years. Nigel Smith, President of the Marvell Society for 2010-2012, is in the process of organizing a Marvell panel for the Montreal meeting of RSA, March 24-26, 2011.

Future RSA Conference dates and sites are as follows:

  • 2012: Washington, D.C.
  • 2013: San Diego
  • 2014: New York
  • 2015: Venue in Europe
  • 2016: Boston
