All students are invited to English Research Matters 2013, a conference presenting the wide range of exciting projects that are underway in the English department.

Faculty members will present on research that includes archival work, oral history, contemporary culture, and creative endeavours, showing that bringing together community and academic expertise produces tremendous social and scholarly benefits.
The conference’s opening session will close with a performance and discussion by talented musicians (and retired English faculty members) Pat and Joe Byrne.
On Saturday February 16, morning sessions will focus on British, Irish, Canadian and Newfoundland Literature. Afternoon sessions will concentrate on creative and speculative fiction, medieval and early modern literature, modern performance, and American and World Literature.
