Just a note to remind you all that proposals for the English Department’s Grad Conference will be accepted until Feb. 15, 2017. This year the topic is on Activism and the Humanities, from Orlando, to President Trump, to classroom pedagogies. This conference will be held in conjunction with submissions to our Humanities Review on a similar topic. We are hoping to present some of the shorter, to-be-published pieces from the HR at the conference.
