#LURC18 was a Huge Success!

The English & Philosophy Undergraduate Research Conference was a wonderful spectacle of scholarly excellence. We want to thank each and every person who supported the event and participated in our activities. Our departments, plenary speaker, panelists, chairs, faculty sponsors, organizers, and audience members all worked so hard to make this one of the best conferences to date!

We would like to give special recognition to Dr. Heidi Bollinger! Her plenary was incredible, and we were so honored to have her as our first plenary speaker. Thank you for joining us!

In 2018, LURe has expanded immensely thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This grant has even allowed us to bring on a Plenary Speaker for the UWG English & Philosophy Undergraduate Research Conference on October 11, 2018—a first in the conference’s history!

Dr. Heidi Bollinger, an assistant professor and Deputy Chair of the English department at Hostos Community College, will be opening the conference at 10:45am with a talk about loss and grief in contemporary graphic novels as well as a broader discussion on research. Everyone is encouraged to attend!

The conference will run from 10:30am to 6:00pm in the University of West Georgia’s Campus Center’s ballrooms. Light refreshments, lunch, and snacks will be available throughout the day. The conference program will be released soon.

We cannot wait to see you there!
