During Spring term, the English Department hosts its annual Undergraduate Literature Conference, sponsored by the literature program. Since 2007, the Undergraduate Literature Conference has showcased student research that reflects the diversity of topics, approaches, and periods that our department covers.

English literature majors and minors are invited to submit proposals based on papers from past or current seminars. The all-day event provides the opportunity for students to present their best work to the department, receive feedback from faculty and graduate students, and learn about the work of colleagues in the English Department.

As always, we strive to create a platform that demonstrates the diversity and quality of work done at Pitt in the literature program. Current teachers are encouraged to share this opportunity with their students. If your class has a large number of English literature majors/minors, please bring their attention to the conference and encourage them to submit an individual proposal or panel. We look forward to another great conference.

This conference gives English literature majors and minors the unique opportunity of presenting their own work to the rest of the English Department. Faculty members, graduate students, undergraduate students, and parents are all invited to attend the event. We hope to see you there!
