“We are here to discuss literature,” the program for the 2011 MUSE Undergraduate Literature Conference announces. “Within literature lies the complexity of human nature, the breadth of human intellect, and the depth of human experience.”
Come join the conversation on Saturday, October 1. This year’s conference, sponsored as always by the Alpha Eta Pi chapter of the English honors society Sigma Tau Delta, will feature a wide range of outstanding undergraduate papers on topics from Shakespeare to Culture and Ethnic Identity, panels on graduate schools and the library, and keynote speaker Susan Phillips, who will speak on “Learning to Talk Shop: Gossip, Merchants, and Medieval Language Lessons.” The event is free and open to the public.
A program with a full listing of events and papers is available here. (Mac users should be forewarned that Preview may not display the document correctly; please use Adobe Reader instead.)
