SMU-in-Taos--colluquially referred to as English Camp--refers to a week long summer seminar at SMU's Taos, New Mexico campus.
In July 2008, the Department of English began offering an annual week-long seminar at SMU’s campus in Taos, NM, for students completing their first and second years in the Ph.D. program. Modeled loosely on NEH summer seminars, the SMU program is one of the few in the country directed specifically and exclusively to graduate students. Each year's seminar is based upon a new topic or subject, and is led by a scholar from another university. Each summer's topic is designed to work across all fields of literary interest.
