The seminar will focus on a general topic in English studies on the model of an academic conference. Students will develop 20-minute conference papers in the first portion of the course and deliver them before the class and an invited audience in a series of seminar meetings late in the semester. Attention will be paid to both the research and the rhetorical demand of this task and to the relationship between each individual contribution and the wider topic.
