Event Details:

Methods Café is a dialogue series in the English Department that pairs faculty members in a conversation about literary theory. Primary texts are chosen to exemplify relevant theoretical models.

One variation will bring together two conversationalists who will apply the theoretical model in a published book or other work to an analysis of the primary text, from their own viewpoints. The other variation will center on one conversationalist asking another to explain the salience of a given work of literary theory and how it has had  an impact on their thinking.
