Welcome to the Graduate Center for Literary Research
The Graduate Center for Literary Research (GCLR) aims to enrich and enhance the experience of students and faculty involved in literary studies by promoting interdisciplinary dialogue and encounters at various levels. The Center is directed by Dominique Jullien (Professor of French and Comparative Literature) with an advisory board consisting of both faculty members and graduate students from different humanities departments.
Our activities include quarterly roundtables, where students present their work in progress, an annual interdisciplinary conference, and annual week-long visits by distinguished scholars who give a public lecture, teach a seminar, and establish connections with our doctoral students.
We also award travel grants to students giving papers at literary conferences and recruitment fellowships for doctoral candidates pursuing interdisciplinary approaches to literature.
