Poetics: Autumn 2021 Schedule
Dear friends and colleagues,
I hope this message finds you well. We are very excited to announce the return of the Stanford Workshop in Poetics for the 2021-2022 academic year. In particular, we are pleased to share that, barring any changes in university policy, the Workshop will be holding its Autumn Quarter meetings using a “hybrid” format, with both in-person and Zoom attendance permitted (registration information and Zoom details will be circulated in advance of each session).
Below is our schedule for the fall:
- Friday 11/5 @ 2pm PT (note the later-than-usual time) in the Board Room of the Stanford Humanities Center – Prof. Lucía Martínez Valdivia (Reed College) will workshop “Audiation: Listening to Writing” (PDF attached), a paper forthcoming in Modern Philology and the basis for her current book project. More details will be available closer to the event.
- Friday 11/19 @ 1pm PT in Pigott Hall Room 216 (note that this event will not be held at the Humanities Center) – Prof. Nigel Smith (Princeton University) will give a presentation titled “Purity of Diction in English Verse, Dissenting Poetics and the Student Revolution: Donald Davie in Cambridge, Essex and Stanford, and What Next?” in conversation with Prof. Robert von Hallberg (Claremont McKenna College). More details will be available closer to the event.
- Friday 12/3 @ 1pm PT in the Board Room of the Stanford Humanities Center – Radhika Koul (Comparative Literature) will workshop a draft paper titled “Beyond Foucauldian Hermeneutics: Didacticism and Rasadhvani in
- Lalla’s Poetics.” More details will be available closer to the event.
Let us know if you have any questions, and good luck to all for the start of the new year!
