New MA Student Library Orientation

Patricia Mardeusz, the library liaison for our department, will be holding a library orientation on Monday, September 21st at 4:30 p.m.

The orientation will take place in the Library Classroom (first floor, Bailey/Howe).


Mark your calendars! The M.A. Program's year-end celebration will be Friday, May 2nd, at 3:00 in the JDL. We'll toast everyone who is completing the degree this year, announce the winner of the Tupper Award, and engage in general merriment. There will be cake.

Exciting News!

The English Department is pleased to announce the creation of the Buckham Graduate Teaching Assistantship, which will be awarded bi-annually to an outstanding applicant to the Master's Program in English. The fellowship will cover two years of tuition plus stipend pay (of around $15,500) for each of those years. The Buckham Graduate Teaching Assistant will receive training in pedagogy and teach, along with the department's other Graduate Teaching Assistants, in the university's First-Year Writing Program. The Graduate Committee will consider all applicants for this fellowship, though preference will be given to in-state residents.

Professor Losambe is also offering an excellent summer course appropriate for graduate study:

ENGS 251: The Harlem Renaissance and Negritude

The Harlem Renaissance Movement is believed to have played a great role in the emergence of the African and West Indian Negritude Movement in Paris in the early 1930s. This course explores points of connection and disconnection between these two most prominent 20th-Century Black cultural Movements and their relevance to contemporary pan-African literary production.

Are you looking for a summer course? Perhaps you should take Professor Jenemann's seminar:

FTS 272/ENGS 282 Film Noir and Hardboiled Fiction

Both film noir and the literary genre that inspired it, hardboiled fiction, have had a profound influence on the history of cinema and literature, our understanding of modernism, and contemporary concepts of subjectivity. In this class, we will examine some of the key literary practitioners of the hardboiled genre and their cinematic adaptations. Texts considered will include The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Maltese Falcon, and the Big Sleep, as well as contemporary rewprkings of the genre.

Our M.A. Program's end of the year celebration will be Wednesday, 8 May, at 3:00 in the John Dewey Lounge. We'll honor the students who have completed the program this year. All are welcome. There will be cake.
