End-of-the-Year Recognitions, Interdisciplinary Student Conference, & More

Each year at our End-of-Year celebration the English Department takes time to recognize the achievements of our students. On June 1st, 3-5pm, at the DePaul Art Museum, we will be honoring graduate students who earned distinction on their Comprehensive exams and/or are receiving their master’s degree “with distinction.”

We also want to recognize graduating students who have presented scholarly papers or given public readings of their creative work as well as those who have published their work, completed a thesis, or been accepted to a doctoral or M.F.A. program.

If you have accomplishments you want to have recognized at the English department celebration, please send them to the graduate office care of Jan Hickey at jhicke11@depaul.edu.


All are invited to attend DePaul’s First Annual Interdisciplinary Student Conference: MOVEMENTS, MIGRATIONS, CROSSING BORDERS on Wednesday, May 30th, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the SAC, Room 154. Student presentation topics will include:

  • Race, Rhetoric and Nationalism
  • Transnational Migrations

  • Border Crossers
  • Latin American and Latino Students

The Keynote Lecture will be presented by Isabel Wilkerson, author of The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration. Wilkerson’s presentation will take place from 6:30—8:30 p.m. in the Student Center Room 314A. Food will be provided.
