February 5 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
You are invited to our monthly “Research Café” for an hour of friendly, completely informal, yet inspiring conversation about our own research and, in general, research in the pandemic times. There will be no papers (this is the role of the Departmental Colloquium), no professional training (this is the role of the Professional Development Workshops), just the pure pleasure of sharing our latest ideas and perplexities around a virtual Zoom table and with a real cup of coffee in hand. What are the most exciting questions you think we should be asking in French-Francophone and Italian Studies? What gives you pleasure and what bothers you in your scholarly pursuits? How literary studies can fit into crossdisciplinary collaborations?
Our next confirmed meeting is Friday, February 5, at 3:00 pm to 4:00pm. Our previous meetings revolved around the following questions (none were preplanned) :
- October Café: why, in our research, are we interested in this question and not another?
- November Café: how our research is (or is not), should (or should not) be implicated with social issues and politics?
- December Café: how do we pace our writing?
Bring a cup of coffee and hope to see you there!
