Travel Funding

Every year, the Graduate College provides professional development awards to help Graduate students travel to present at conferences or conduct reasearch. This year, students from our program received funding to travel both nationally and internationally to present at conferences including the American Men's Studies Association Conference; the College English Association Conference; the James Joyce Italian Foundation Conference in Rome; and the Reading and Writing in the Twenty-First Century Literary Studies Classroom Conference in Australia.
