TROPOS (way of life, manner, style) is a graduate non-profit student organization of the Department of Romance and Classical Languages at Michigan State University.
As part of our efforts to provide graduate students from across the field with the opportunity to gain valuable experience in scholarly dialogue and publication, TROPOS hosts a graduate student conference and publishes a journal on a regular basis. From literature and cinema to linguistics and creative writing pieces, we hope our readers are inspired, entertained, and provoked to thought.
TROPOS was first published in 1971 and is one of the longest graduate student-edited journals in Romance Studies in North America. TROPOS constitutes an effort to create an intellectual space where graduate students could share their ideas. Along these years, both journal and conference have been organized, written, and published exclusively by our department’s graduate students and its continuity depends upon the tenacity of the editorial team, advisors, and the rest of the student body.
