Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Practice

The Lannan Center at Georgetown University is an interdisciplinary program focused on the intersection between literary practice and economic and social justice, human rights, literacy, cultural freedom, environmental activism, and political dissidence.

With grant support, students participate in the Folger Library poetry and seminar series; noted writers and poets are invited to campus for readings and seminars; courses have been developed to center on the work of the visiting writers; community outreach programs are offered to area schools, and an annual conference is held at the university.
