An integral part of the English curriculum is the George Bleasby Colloquia Series. This series is presented in separate evening programs.
These programs are public presentations by the faculty of the department, featured speakers and majors on individual scholarship, interests, and creative projects.
The colloquia serve two purposes:
- To create a sense of community both by bringing together faculty, students, and scholars, and also by having these constituencies share what they are learning.
- To give the entire curriculum a central, though diverse, focus - a prism of understanding.
