Poetry & Poetics Workshop, alternating Mondays, 4:30 PM, Rosenwald 405
The Poetry and Poetics Workshop provides a forum for all those members of the University devoted to the study of poetry, be they graduate students, faculty, or poets. The workshop is committed to historical and formal engagement with poetry in all languages and across all periods, welcoming comparative work, as well as work that issues from a variety of theoretical perspectives. Beyond this core concern, we also value poetics broadly construed, including theories of the principles of creation, technique and composition in literary texts and, by extension, visual art, cinema and other art forms. Graduate students from any field are especially encouraged to present essays and dissertation chapters at the workshop.
