Colloquium 2014: Program


What are you working on? The EGSS is holding a Graduate English Colloquium that will offer graduate students (returning and incoming) and faculty the opportunity to answer this question in a 10-minute presentation, using a maximum of 3 slides. The goal is to share information about new and ongoing research in the department. Incoming students are particularly encouraged to attend.



The event will run from 10 am to 1 pm on Thursday, September 18, 2014 in CLE C109. Please join us for all or part of the event. We’ll have coffee and snacks throughout the morning.

Please direct any questions about the colloquium to Caroline (winterc[at]uvic[dot]ca) or Lawrence (le89[at]uvic[dot]ca).
