For eleven years, from 2005 to 2015, undergraduates from Susquehanna and other universities around the country shared their scholarly and creative work at this annual conference. Panels of three or four students were organized around various literary themes and cultural issues. After reading their work aloud, student panelists and an audience of aspiring writers, teachers, and scholars joined in a discussion.
Panels ran throughout the day, interspersed with a lecture or reading by a nationally acclaimed literary scholar or writer. Attendees participated in a spirited discussion of the intellectual and creative challenges that shaped literary study during the first two decades of the 21st century.
