The students of English 401 would like to invite all students, faculty, and members of the St. Mary’s community to their annual capstone conference, which will take place on Monday, April 19th, via Microsoft Teams, from 9am to 4pm.
The class will be sharing work from their English 401 capstone projects, which comprise of independent research on topics of their choosing. This year’s conference title, (Re)Presentations, offers a sense of the kinds of research that students have been doing throughout the semester: recovering overlooked modes of thinking and refiguring ways of understanding literary/cultural history and texts. Each project enters into a specific archive and critical conversation and contributes to it with a new and carefully argued perspective. At this year’s conference, you can look forward to hearing about projects that range from the medieval period to contemporary fiction and film and that engage with questions about race, gender, sexuality, power, theology, education, history, politics, and social justice, among many others. Please join us for what promises to be an exciting day of conversation!
