English Graduate Organization Research Colloquium

EGO is excited to announce the first research colloquium of the semester:

Monday March 16th, at 12:00PM in Marist Annex: Rachel Daly
"Against Angelism: Geoffrey Hill's Negative Theology of Embodiedness"

The research colloquium is a community event to support and respond to each other's research. All are encouraged to attend. Rachel will be delivering the paper in preparation for a conference she is attending later in March. In keeping with the form, she will not be circulating a draft of the paper in advance, but has provided an abstract for those who would like more information about the paper topic.

If you have questions or would like to submit your paper to EGO for future colloquia meetings, please email Fletcher Bonin at boninf@cua.edu.


Modern/Contemporary Literature Research Colloquium

Please join the Modern/Contemporary Colloquium for a dissertation workshop on Wednesday, March 18 from 12:30-1:30 in the Marist Annex Conference Room. We will be discussing Chris Petter's chapter on Wilbur after Frost.

The goal of the Modern/Contemporary Colloquium is to provide opportunities for graduate students working in 20th century American and British literature to discuss their dissertation projects (as proposals, chapters, articles, or conference papers) with other graduate students and with faculty. We aim to ensure that at least two faculty members from the area are present at each workshop.

Meetings are open to all graduate students who might be interested in seeing a model of what a dissertation-in-process looks like, as well as a conversation among grads and faculty about a dissertation project. For more information and/or a copy of Chris Petter's chapter, please contact Dr. Taryn Okuma (okuma@cua.edu).

by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Wednesday, April 22nd, 8-9:30pm
Opus Hall Ground Floor Lounge

"Set on the French Riviera in the late 1920s, Tender Is the Night is the tragic romance of the young actress Rosemary Hoyt and the stylish American couple Dick and Nicole Diver. A brilliant young psychiatrist at the time of his marriage, Dick is both husband and doctor to Nicole, whose wealth goads him into a lifestyle not his own. A profound study of the romantic concept of character, Tender Is the Night is lyrical, expansive, and hauntingly evocative."
