English Undergraduate Conference

 

"English at Work": The Sixth Annual English Undergraduate Conference will be held Thursday and Friday, April 16-17, 2015, in Walter Library (4th floor)

A student panel prepares for their session

The first five English Undergraduate Conferences have been, as one student raved, "a great celebration of talent and new ideas emerging from the undergraduates!"

The tradition continues with the sixth conference. As usual, the conference will include a session with English alumnae/i talking about their career paths, a special noon program on publishing careers, and many terrific presentations by current English majors, both creative and academic.

Submissions for the 2015 conference are due Monday, March 30. Please read the guidelines carefully. Want to volunteer to help out at the conference? Email us at englmaj@umn.edu. We will be posting the conference schedule in early April.

Responses from past conferences:

"I liked hearing about all the different fields that could be explored with an English degree."

"I enjoyed getting to meet and talk with English majors I hadn't met before."

"The Q & A with the publishing professionals was very practical and concrete."

Lunch at the conference

"There was a wide variety of topics presented--even the mediums in which they were presented were diverse."

"I enjoyed the laid-back but respectful environment provided for students to experience what for many of them was their first conference."

"Free food! Delicious!"
