The 2nd year cohort invites you to join us for a showcase of our conference papers prepared as part of the first year portfolio exam, as well as a discussion of our experiences with the exam itself. The three presenters are: Sharanya Dutta, discussing new forms of the novel and what she calls “theory-work” in the 2017 book The Ministry of Utmost Happiness;  Eva Gordon-Wallin, discussing the rapidly changing material and educational culture of the 19th century and its effects on women; and Rob Yates, discussing magic and women’s eroticism in the early 17th century satirical play The Puritan Widow. The panel will be moderated by Olivia Wood. First year students are especially encouraged to attend.
