Workshop in Poetics
The Workshop in Poetics is concerned with the theoretical and practical dimensions of the reading and criticism of poetry. During the seven years of its existence, the Workshop has become a central venue at Stanford for sharing projects in a general conversation outside of disciplinary and national limits. Its core members are about twenty graduate students and several members of the Stanford faculty. Everyone is welcome.
The workshop's main purpose is to offer Ph.D. students a place to present their work in progress in a community of peers and faculty. Not bound by language or period, the group has discussed most of the literatures studied at Stanford.
