English Department Shop Talk

To nurture faculty research and foster collegiality, the English department holds Shop Talks each semester in the Salem State Writing Center. These informal talks are designed to give faculty members the opportunity to present and discuss their scholarly work in progress with interested members of the department.

A sampling of past topics includes: Milton’s Green Borders: Pastoral, Ecocriticism, and Literary Form, Penciled Identity: The Gurs Concentration Camp as Comic, Evolving Kinship Terms and Same-Sex Marriage and Henry James’s Manipulation of His Potential Publishers.

The Shop Talks not only reflect our faculty members’ broad range of research interests, but also our commitment to scholarship and desire to support one another in this important work.

Our first Shop Talk for Spring 2012:

Patricia Buchanan will lead a discussion on Soliloquy in Deadwood.
