#LURC19 was our Biggest Accomplishment Yet!
The 2019 English & Philosophy Undergraduate Research Conference was a wonderful celebration of scholarly excellence. LURe wishes to thank every person who supported the event and participated in our activities. Our department members, plenary speaker, panelists, chairs, faculty sponsors, organizers, and audience members contributed to the professional atmosphere as we relished in a day of undergraduate scholarship. Year after year, LURC continues to surpass expectations to become the best UWG event of the fall semester.
Additionally, we would like to give special recognition to Dr. Cord J. Whitaker, LURe‘s second annual plenary speaker. His keynote on Black Metaphors: Race, Rhetoric, and the Middle Ages Today was enlightening, and Dr. Whitaker’s presentation engaged a ballroom full of eager audience members. We were so honored to have him visiting our campus. Thank you for joining us!
Congratulations to Danielle Gorman and Kelsey Mulinax, two students who won signed copies of Dr. Whitaker’s book!

Our editorial staff is so proud of our published authors, and we’d like to say thanks to everyone who was able to come — even from as far away as New York, Pennsylvania, and Canada!
