PhD extra-curricular activities

Expanded Poetics Workshop

The Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies and the IAS are delighted to invite all interested PGs and early-career scholars (within 3 years of defence of PhD) in all disciplines to participate in a workshop on Expanded Poetics with Nathan Brown and Stephen Ross. Dr. Brown is the Director and Dr. Ross an Affiliated Member of the Centre for ExpandedPoetics at Concordia University, Montreal Canada. Please visit the website for more information: http://www.centreforexpandedpoetics.com

 

As the Centre’s website explains, “The Centre for Expanded Poetics is an experimental research laboratory for the interdisciplinary study of structure, form, and fabrication.” It explicitly aims to bring about discussions between scholars trained in literature (more precisely poetics) and those in other disciplines:

 

  • Visual and Performing Arts: “Approaching poetry as practice of material construction and conceptual articulation, we study its participation in a larger field of artistic practices, including cinema, photography, architecture, sculpture, and performance.”
  • Politics, Social Sciences, Medical Humanities: “Eschewing disembodied accounts of poetic subjectivity, we approach poetics as a politically, historically situated practice inflected by embodied positionality.”

 

How to Participate:

If you are a PG or Early-Career Scholar with a project you think would benefit from the Workshop, please reserve a place with Prof. Daniel Katz (d.katz@warwick.ac.uk) by email by April 15. You will need to include a 500-word abstract of the project you want to workshop: MA paper or thesis, PhD thesis, book manuscript, article, etc. As noted above, the Workshop warmly welcomes projects from beyond the Arts and Humanities.

Translation Studies doctoral research seminar

Our next doctoral research seminar will take place on Tuesday 30th of April between 12 and 2 p.m. in H0.02. All PhD students whose research focusses on translation are welcome to attend. Students wishing to present their work should contact Chantal Wright at C.M.Wright(at)warwick.ac.uk.

This calendar's schedule is empty.
