The Faculty and Graduate Student Seminars of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures are an interdisciplinary, interdepartmental series seeking to provide a collegial atmosphere in which scholars can present their recent work. Focusing on, but not limited to, Romance languages and literatures, the series seeks to build bridges of communication between disciplines and departments in the MU community, as well as to provide opportunities for outside scholars to share their work with scholars at MU.
