Speaker Series Overview

The Center sponsors a series of interdisciplinary speaking events designed to foster and extend conversations about writing studies research across campus and beyond. The Colloquium series brings to campus distinguished speakers to share their scholarship, along with hosting a special Graduate Student Research Forum each semester. In addition, affiliated faculty and graduate students discuss their current projects in our brownbag series. And starting in 2010, graduate students have shared their work-in-progress at the annual Gesa E. Kirsch CWS Graduate Student Symposium.
