The Fordham Graduate English Association has organized three faculty–student roundtable discussions that will take place on Friday, October 24, 2014 between 2:00PM and 4:20PM in McGinley Commons 234-235. Faculty panelists include Professors John Bugg, Heather Dubrow, and Rebecca Sanchez.
During each session, three graduate students will each read their own short original paper that engages with keywords related to the faculty member's recent or forthcoming publication. In addition, faculty participants will speak about their own current work. The event will provide an opportunity for students to learn about recent faculty work, facilitate student–faculty connections, and offer an afternoon during which students and faculty alike can explore topics, theories, and ideas that reach across field, discipline, and period.
A celebratory reception will follow. Come for the conversation; stay for the wine and cheese!
