The Department of Romance Languages is hosting a faculty / graduate colloquium on Thursday, September 21, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Romance Studies Lounge (Klarman Hall 164). Three Romance Studies faculty (all members of the Medieval Studies graduate field) will present their work: Simone Pinet, Marilyn Migiel, and Cary Howie.
The colloquium is a new Romance Studies initiative intended to foster faculty-graduate student discussion about research projects. It is informal: there are no papers or lectures or book talks, but rather open discussion about the kind of work and the kinds of questions guiding different faculty research endeavors. Each of the three faculty members has selected a short text that relates to teaching, research, or something that is essential for graduate education. The variety of these texts is eclectic.
