Celebrating our Seniors - 3. 10. 14

Last Monday, English Department seniors, faculty, teaching fellows, and staff came together to celebrate the Class of 2014 in the Thompson Parlor. Director of Undergraduate Studies Stephen Burt and Interim Chair Nicholas Watson toasted thesis writers and non-thesis writers alike.

Prior to the reception, ten creative thesis writers submitted works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, as well as screenplays and plays. Seventeen seniors submitted critical essays on subjects ranging from marriage in American Modernism to violence in the Eddas to objects in Elizabeth Bishop’s poetry.

Come May, we’ll see 47 seniors leave our department, destined for exciting futures!
