MUSE Workshop @ MSU
Nov 14 – Nov 18 all-day

In 2018-19, the Department of English will pilot a new program, MUSE: Mentoring Underrepresented Scholars in English, with a special fall workshop for prospective graduate students in English. The inaugural MUSE workshop will be held from November 14-18th, 2018 at Michigan State University, in East Lansing, MI. The Fall 2018 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 all-expenses-paid workshop will allow students to learn more about the English Department, visit graduate classes and co-curricular activities (lectures, film screenings, Research Workshops), 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.

English Comp Exams Workshop @ MSU Wells Hall C607

A Comprehensive Exams workshop will be held in the 6th floor conference room on Friday, January 11th from 2-4 pm. This workshop is designed to be helpful for anyone who is currently at any stage of the comps process, so if you’re working on your proposal, making your way through the lists, getting ready for your written exam, or thinking through the oral defense, we’d love to see you! Drs. Figueroa and McCallum have agreed to provide a faculty perspective on the comps process for the first hour of the workshop. They will each present some comments about comps process from the faculty/department perspective, with plenty of time for questions. In the second hour of the workshop, we’ll have three ABD grad students (Rebecca Fussell, Am Kunapulli, and Christine Peffer) who will share their comps experiences before, during, and after the exam. If you have any questions about this workshop, please feel free to email sabogart@msu.edu.
