We've got a new events calendar! For those of you who have added the Fordham English Events Calendar to your Google Calendars,* and for everyone who's just interested in events that are sponsored and co-sponsored by the department, check out this page (and bookmark it!). The calendar is now fully integrated into our English Connect blog, and it looks great!
On the Fordham English Events calendar, you can find out about things like:
- Lectures and readings by English faculty, such as the September 14 Inaugural Lecture by Edward Cahill.
- Readings and presentations by visiting writers and scholars, including those in the Poets Out Loud series starting on September 26 and, on October 6, the first Mary Higgins Clark lecture by hugely popular writer Lee Child, author of the Jack Reacher series.
- Practical, career-oriented events such as the Career Services Workshop for English Majors, to be held on both campuses on September 28, and "Building Your Life as a Writer and Editor," which will take place on December 6.
- Scholarly discussions such as this year's Mullarkey Forum, which is organized this year in conjunction with the Reid Family Writers of Color Reading Series, on October 26.
- Events sponsored by the department's Creative Writing Program, such as the popular Golden Gloves Literary Competition, to be held this year on December 6th.
- Events the English department is co-sponsoring, such as the October 17th visit by acclaimed music writer Simon Reynolds, who will talk about his forthcoming book Shock and Awe: Glam Rock and Its Legacy, from the Seventies to the Twenty-First Century.
- And the calendar can even help you plan for next year's events, including the April 25th reading by Robin Coste Lewis, who will visit as part of the Reid Family Writers of Color Reading Series.
The calendar also allows you to add, with one click, individual events to your Google Calendar or Apple Calendar. So: bookmark it! Check it out regularly!
*Note: we will not be regularly updating the English Events Google Calendar in the future. Faculty members who are subscribed to the "English Internal" calendar, which lists things like department meetings, will still get that information there.
