Under the direction of Dr. Fabio Pagani, the graduate students of the Greek and Latin Department at Catholic University of America are organizing a series of colloquia for graduate students in the department of Greek and Latin and related fields to present works in progress. Karen Carducci led the effort 2016–17. I (Alex Poulos) led the effort during 2017–18. For the 2018–19 academic year, Casey Knott will serve as coordinator. Meetings occur roughly once a week, and light refreshments are served. The current schedule is below. Please contact Casey Knott (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in presenting or attending.
We aim to provide a friendly environment for students to receive constructive critique from their peers. When possible, we arrange for a faculty member or graduate student to serve as respondent. Drafts of the paper are distributed a week in advance to enhance the discussion. The format is flexible: some people present drafts of term papers, others dissertation chapters or articles in preparation, still others papers that will be presented at conference. It is a terrific venue to receive comments on works in progress, and a wonderful way to stay abreast of our colleagues’ work.
