A Folger Institute Fellowships program introduced in the 2016-2017 fellowships year. Meeting every other month, Critical Witness is a reading group in which readers, local scholars, and fellows are invited to come together to discuss the most recent scholarly works of literary criticism, history, philosophy, and theatre studies. Discussions of these texts are open and exploratory, and led by the Folger fellows currently in residence.
