MUSE Workshop @ MSU
Oct 20 – Oct 24 all-day

In 2018-19, the Department of English piloted a new program, MUSE: Mentoring Underrepresented Scholars in English. The third annual MUSE workshop will be held from October 20-24th, 2021 at Michigan State University, in East Lansing, MI. The Fall MUSE workshop is directed at prospective English graduate students from underrepresented groups, including students of African American, Latinx and Chicanx, Asian American, Native American, and Indigenous descent. The workshop will allow students to learn more about the English Department, visit graduate classes and co-curricular activities, meet with our graduate faculty and graduate students, and receive individual feedback from the faculty on their application materials for graduate school. Students will also have the opportunity to present their research to faculty. The workshop aims to introduce prospective students to a robust culture of mentoring essential for a rewarding graduate school experience, and a thriving life in academia.
