Literary Studies Workshop

The Literary Studies Workshop is a lunch initiative aimed at bringing together literary scholars across the different sections and disciplines in the department. At least twice a month, we team up to get to know our colleagues and the areas they work in. Junior and senior researchers meet to discuss papers or articles nearing completion, to listen to presentations of new and ongoing research projects, to provide feedback on funding applications or to collectively reflect on key texts and issues that matter in literary studies today. Occasionally, we also invite guest speakers.
