In addition to hosting distinguished visiting professors and its annual conference, the Graduate Center for Literary Research (GCLR) also actively supports graduate student writing and research by conducting roundtables for student work. These GCLR roundtable workshops, comprised of graduate students from across the humanities, offer selected graduate students a prime opportunity for extended feedback from an interdisciplinary perspective as well as possible financial support for conference travel. In light of travel and conference restrictions due to Covid-19, travel funds will be held for later distribution, when needed. 

For more information on the roundtable workshops, please visit our Roundtables and Travel Grants page

The Winter Roundtable is scheduled for Friday February 19th at 5 p.m. 

If you are interested in presenting, please send a 300-word abstract to (Christene d’Anca, Research Coordinator) by Monday, January 18, 2021. Eligible papers will vary in form, content, and disciplinary approach; there are no strict parameters or themes and works-in-progress, as well as dissertation chapters, will be considered.
