Annual English Graduate Conference

The English graduate students at Stony Brook University have held an annual conference for thirty years running, making it the longest running graduate student conference in the country. The event includes an open call for papers for graduate students around the US to come to Stony Broo poetry centerk to present their current research. Held in our main campus, the conference is organized into sets of concurrent panels with peer moderators and faculty respondents, enabling student presenters to interact with professors and students both in the English department and other Humanities departments and programs. We also offer a best paper prize and  the opportunity to self-publish one's work on Humanities Commons. By engaging other departments within the Humanities and students from graduate programs across the East Coast, we also hope to expand this to an outreach opportunity.

This year, our theme was "Literature as Activism," with a keynote presentation from Dr. Lisa Duggan,  an  activist, journalist and Professor of Social & Cultural Analysis at New York University. With  this theme, we aimed to foster a more interdisciplinary environment, as well as a more active exchange of ideas between departments.
