Each year, an English Department faculty committee selects among the best of our students’ work in literature and creative writing for presentation at the Annual Atlantic Undergraduate English Conference (AAUEC). This year’s conference was held at the University of PEI last weekend, March 3-5, when faculty and students from around the Atlantic region gathered to listen to and discuss various topics.
The following students were selected for the 2017 conference:
- Katie O’Brien, “The Maternal Abject and ‘Passive Suffering’ as the Real Horror in Rosemary’s Baby”
- Kevin Smith, “A Picture Like a Poem: William Hogarth’s The Harlot’s Progress”
- Hope Tohme, “The Utter Unpredictability of Words: An Analysis of Translation and Transposition as it Pertains to Mary Stuart’s Casket Sonnets”
- Sarah Vallis, “Polite Deference: Queen Elizabeth I’s tempering with gendered bodies and power”
- Karlee Bustelli, “Flight”
- Tuqqaasi Nuqingaq, “The Way the Earth Feels”
Congratulations to all of the English students who did such a great job of representing our department!
