Colloquia and Workshops

In addition to scholarly talks, the English Department hosts several lecture series, colloquia, and workshops.

Held on the Autumnal Equinox, the American Indian Returnings series, or AIR, is supported by the Eidson Foundational Fund, under the direction of LeAnne Howe (Eidson Distinguished Professor in American Literature, Department of English) and Channette Romero (Associate Professor, English). This annual event brings eminent Native scholars and writers from all fields to campus.

The Creative Writing Program organizes readings given by authors both within our department and without, and hosted by the English Department, ICE, and the Willson Center.

The Georgia Colloquium in 18th- and 19th-Century British Literature, directed by Casie LeGette (Associate Professor of English) is housed in the English Department and supported by the Willson Center for Humanities & Arts and the Rodney Baine Lecture Series, the latter of which is devoted to bringing prominent scholars of eighteenth-century studies to campus.

The department also co-hosts the Symposium on the Book with the UGA Special Collections Libraries, a semesterly seminar and workshop that focuses on books themselves as objects of study.

The Willson Center’s Interdisciplinary Modernisms Workshop, directed by Nell Andrew (Associate Professor, Art History, Lamar Dodd School of Art) and Susan Rosenbaum (Associate Professor, Department of English) facilitates and formalizes a collaborative and interdisciplinary exchange of ideas providing graduate students, visiting scholars, and university faculty the opportunity to discuss and provide feedback for works-in-progress.
