English Studies New Directions Symposium 2012

The Symposium FOR Graduate Students
run BY Graduate Students!

On February 3, 2012 in STV 133, the department will host The New Directions in English Studies Symposium which explores the theme of forging connections between and across fields and disciplines. This year the goal is to bring especially robust interdisciplinary work that engages deeply with multiple areas of scholarly interest in an effort to show the possibilities created by a program based on an English Studies model.

The New Directions Symposium is an inclusive space that provides a platform for graduate students to present their work in a comfortable and supportive environment. It facilitates the sharing of innovative research, scholarly, creative, and pedagogical work in English Studies.
