The Modern & Contemporary Culture Workshop

The Modern & Contemporary Culture Workshop is an interdisciplinary forum, open to faculty members and PhD students researching topics related to the culture of the modern and contemporary periods. Essays/chapters/proposals are circulated a week in advance of our meeting to registered participants. We then spend an hour discussing the paper with the aim of improving the document for publication or submission. Interested presenters should email Christa Noel Robbins.
