Welcome to the English Department Graduate Colloquia!
What We Do
The English Department Graduate Colloquia meet regularly, usually on a bi-monthly basis. Colloquium meetings might include invited talks by established scholars in the field; workshops of dissertation chapters, prospectuses, or article drafts; discussions of recent publications in the field; or professionalization workshops. Colloquium events also regularly draw audiences from the greater Cambridge/Boston area. Students in the graduate program are encouraged to attend any or all of them with any degree of regularity, regardless of their primary field(s) of interest. See individual colloquium pages on the left sidebar for detailed information about upcoming events. You can also subscribe to individual colloquium mailing lists by contacting the coordinators listed below.
