The State of the Art: A Writing and Rhetoric Seminar in July

This summer the Georgetown Writing Program will host a writing and rhetoric seminar for faculty. Organized around a handful of provocative readings, we plan to gather a group of energetic and curious scholars, researchers, and teachers to engage with the state of our art and push its boundaries.

Here’s the skinny:


A summer seminar experience designed to provoke and unsettle our teaching and research practices. With no registration fee, and a carefully curated (and short!) reading list, faculty can focus on working together to sharpen their next project or course design.


July 18, 19, and 20 • 2:00pm -5:00 pm
