Contemporary Studies Workshop
The Contemporary Studies Workshop (CSW) is a interdisciplinary interdepartmental reading group that hopes, by bringing different methodologies, interests and lexicons together, something collaborative and generative will emerge. If that something takes the form of a larger project or simply means each scholar gains further access to more perspectives, remains to be seen.
As a graduate-run satellite of the MSCI, the CSW is committed to experimentation and creativity, to gathering new constellations of text each semester to discuss amongst ourselves and with faculty members. We are open to all interested departments, students, and faculty.
