Language, Writing, and Rhetoric

A venue for critical and creative work at the University of Maryland, the Center for Literary and Critical Studies will sponsor lectures, symposia, and readings throughout the year. Scheduled speakers for our 2009-2010 theme, “Reading: Histories, Practices, Futures,” will include Elaine Showalter, David Baker, Duncan Wu, Morris Dickstein, Linda Gregerson, Garrett Stewart, Terese Svoboda, and James Longenbach. All events are free and open to the public.
