Poetry and Poetics, Certificate

College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences   > Department of English  > Poetry and Poetics, Certificate

The purpose of this certificate is to provide a useful and marketable specialization in the disciplinary history and current theories of Poetry and Poetics. The English Department is already the home of The Poetics Group, which was formed in 2015 and is interested in poetry and poetics across a variety of theoretical, historical, and aesthetic registers. The Group generates a vital space for wide-ranging conversations (at once diverse and convergent) on the life of a poem, from its most closely observed prosodic elements to its capacity not only for bearing witness and responding to but participating in the business of living, along such dynamic lines as race, gender, economics, and ecological crisis.
