The Potomac Center occasionally hosts graduate-student workshops in conjunction with its semi-annual symposia. The graduate student workshops provide an opportunity for M.A. and Ph.D. students to continue the discussion begun at the corresponding symposium, and to think out loud—together with students from other disciplines—about its implications for their own reading, research, and writing. Taking place on the University of Maryland campus a few days after the symposia, the workshops begin with short provocations offered by a few University of Maryland faculty members from a variety of departments. They then open into 90 minutes of discussion. Although designed especially for graduate students, the workshops are free and open to the public. All faculty, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates in the Washington-Baltimore region are warmly invited to attend and to participate.
