Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe
Colin Hoch is a third year in Renaissance Studies and History. Focusing on Western Europe during the late medieval and early modern eras, Colin is especially interested in how religious change informed developments in historiography, temporal consciousness, and cultural memory. His secondary interests include the history of science and cultures of commemoration in the wake of the Protestant and Catholic Reformations.
Before the doctoral program Colin received an M.A. in Social Sciences from the University of Chicago and an M.A. from Yale in European Studies. In addition to his studies, Colin is the current convener of the long-running Renaissance Lunch series, an interdisciplinary forum dedicated to the study of the European Renaissance.
