The inaugural English MA Symposium will take place on Saturday, February 26th starting at 1 p.m. in Robeson 231/232. The event will go until 5:30, with approximately an hour for each of the three panels -- two twenty-minute presentations each, plus a question-and-answer period followed by a refreshment break between panel sessions.
Please mark your calendars and make plans to attend. This promises to be a wonderful event, with the opportunity to meet and socialize with fellow graduate students, alumni, and faculty across the humanities while listening to some wonderful papers given by your peers.
