Graduate Student Colloquium a Success

On Saturday the English Graduate Organization (EGO) held its annual Colloquium. Saturday's panels offered sessions by graduate students from WVU, Pitt, and IUP. Panels covered a wide range of topics investigating literature and pedagogy, with creative readings from WVU MFA students as well.

Students and faculty enjoyed post-Colloquium refreshments on the Mountainlair terrace.

The day concluded with an excellent keynote lecture by Dr. Terry Myers Zawacki from George Mason University. Her presentation was entitled "Researching the Local/Writing the International: Developing Culturally Inclusive Writing Pedagogies."

Special thanks to Kate Ridinger Smorul, Doug Terry, and Josh Johnson for working so hard to organize the day's events.

Additional thanks to Dr. Laura Brady for her many contributions.
