Meeting description:
Please join us Nov 19th (Thursday) from 6-8 pm for a workshop with the Prosody Online team. The group, comprising Roland Greene (English & Complit), Kenneth Ligda (VPTL), and Armen Davoudian (English), will present on their work in progress and its ramifications for the digital pedagogy of poetry. The workshop will take place in the Stanford Humanities Center Board Room.
 
Of the project, the group writes:
 
Prosody Online is a website that combines pedagogical tools for teaching prosody with a forum for sharing cutting-edge research in the field, and thus foregrounds the interaction between learning and scholarship. Unlike existing online resources that treat prosody as a set of tasks to be learned, this platform will both introduce the topic as an area of active research/practice and take students and scholars as far into the problems of the field as they wish to go. The content of the platform to be developed under the grant would be limited to accentual-syllabic versification and free verse, the dominant systems in English-language poetry since the Middle Ages. Once a successful platform is built, further support may be solicited from other sources to add content for syllabic (the Romance languages and Japanese), quantitative (classical Greek and Latin), and other versifications.
 
In addition to discussing and brainstorming ideas for Prosody Online, we will hear about other online initiatives for poetic instruction that our workshop members have been variously involved in, such as the MOOC “Ten Premodern Poems by Women” (instructor Eavan Boland).
 
Dinner and drinks will be served.
