2016 World Literature Conference Conference

During our final exam sessions, ENG 230 World Literature Students will present conference papers they have written based on their proposals aimed at conferences they have identified as suitable venues for their individual researches. The Conference Conference assignment asks students to practice identifying and writing for appropriate scholarly audiences for their written literary analyses. The experience of presenting their papers in our classroom "Conference Conferences" provides all students in the course -- English majors and minors, General Education satisfiers, and electors -- with practical experience in public presentation and, in so doing, a glimpse into the profession of literary and writing studies.

Welcome to ENG 230 World Literature

Welcome to Fall 2016, World Literature Scholars! I'm looking forward to our inaugural semester of this course and Shenandoah's new English program. Please consider this blog as an online extension of our classroom. We'll continue some discussions here that we began in class. I'll post relevant news and on-campus items of interest. You'll also find useful links to relevant background materials on course content as well as useful links for navigating Shenandoah University.

I look forward to our semester's journey together.
All best,
Dr. Brown
