Last year, MSU Denver started its annual MSU Denver Undergraduate English Conference with style, dedicating a day to the works of students working in all areas of English study. This rewarding program, which gives undergrads a chance to share their research and creative works, returns this Friday, Feb. 22. Taking place right here in the King Center, this year’s conference promises to be an even greater success.
Showcasing both local and regional undergraduates, the conference offers panels for individual writing and also discussion amongst peers. Work in literature, creative writing, film studies, rhetoric, and English education were submitted for this year’s program and each contain a theme of diversity: gender, culture, class, and so forth.
Last year, the conference was honored to present Donna Dewey, an Academy Award winning documentary director, as the keynote speaker. Similarly, this year the program is promised to contain someone of national importance, though the name has yet to be announced.
Though it is too late to submit your own application for presentation, attendance is highly recommended for anyone interested in what fellow students are cooking up in poetry, fiction, and scholarly research. This conference can serve as inspiration for anyone with a passion for knowledge, even if you’re not majoring in English. Lunch will also be provided, allowing a chance to share ideas and connect with fellow students.
MSU requests that anyone planning on attending, fill out a registration form online at the MSU Department of English website, that way attendance can be anticipated. Join in on the fun at this year’s MSU Denver Undergraduate English Conference.
