Name of creator
In 1976, the Canadian Society for Renaissance Studies/Société canadienne d'études de la Renaissance was founded by an informal group of Francophone Canadian scholars called Les Seiziémistes, the Centre d'études de la renaissance in Sherbrooke, and the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies in Toronto. The CSRS is a bilingual, interdisciplinary society dedicated to the study of the Renaissance; it was formally recognized as a learned society in 1976.
Scope and content
Series consists of records of the Seiziémistes Canadiens meetings ; the CSRS Annual General Meetings and executive meetings including minutes and agendas ; the Canadian Federation for the Humanities records ; CSRS newsletters and bulletins ; financial records ; records from the annual conference ; membership records ; correspondence ; directories ; records of the Secretary-Treasurer and the President, as well as other Renaissance associations' records.
Immediate source of acquisition
The records were received by the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies (CRRS) from the Canadian Society for Renaissance Studies (CSRS), who then transferred them to the archivist at a later date.
The records sent under accession 2015.09V and 2019.10V are organized by year and cover material from 2001-2018. This differs from previous accessions which were arranged by file. The files from accession 2015.09V and 2019.10V contain the record types described above as well as additional material. The Archivist grouped all the files in this series into subseries based on their contents.
