Annual English Studies Conference

ESC 2015 Kick Off Students with Books

 

Eastern Illinois University’s English Studies Conference is an annual event held during the Spring Semester that showcases the exciting work being done by our students, faculty, alumni, and local community members in the various areas of English Studies. 

The next conference will be held Tuesday, Apr. 10, 2018.  For more a more detailed overview of the conference, see our 2018 English Studies Conference Program.  (And feel free to check out programs from past conferences below.)

This event is open to the entire university and the public and will feature a range of panels, roundtables, readings, poster sessions, and more in the areas of Creative Writing, Literary & Cultural Studies, Professional Writing, Rhetoric and Composition, and English Language Arts Pedagogy.  Come hear current students discuss their recent creative and scholarly projects and their experiences at internships, local & national conferences, and more.  Gain important tips for the job hunt by attending alumni panels where participants will discuss the ways in which they marketed and applied their English Studies skills to various professions.  And sit in on faculty panels to learn about the diverse research trajectories being pursued by English Studies scholars.
