Workshop in Poetics

The Workshop in Poetics is a central venue at Stanford and in the Bay Area for sharing projects in a conversation outside of conventional disciplinary and national limits. This workshop explores the theoretical and practical dimensions of the reading and criticism of poetry. Oriented toward work in progress by PhD students, the workshop also presents talks by visiting speakers and discussion of both classic and neglected works in the field. The Workshop in Poetics’ agenda is driven by the interests of its members. Within the eclectic critical landscape called “poetics” in literary studies, the workshop offers a forum where scholars with distinctive methods and historical concerns can test their claims and assumptions about poetic objects against the broad linguistic and historical knowledge of the workshop’s members.
