The 20th Century Colloquium gathers graduate students, faculty, and speakers from a diverse array of disciplines to discuss all manner of 20th century Anglophone texts, including novels, poetry, film, critical theory, literary and cultural histories, and the like. We aim to foster a robust and engaged community of 20th century scholars at Princeton. Our events include lectures; works-in-progress from graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and faculty; graduate symposia; and Q&A sessions. We frequently invite visiting scholars from around the country to discuss their most recent or upcoming work. The broad scope of our colloquium allows us to host conversations about an extraordinary number of genres, geographies, and times, and we often collaborate with other colloquia to host scholars of mutual interest.
Reception in the Thorp Library to follow talk.
