Academic Projects

Got a great paper you’ve been working on in one of your English classes? A project from last semester that turned out really well?
Consider sharing it with the larger English community by submitting it to English Symposium. 

You could submit a traditional piece of literary criticism like an essay you wrote in a 303, 450, 495, or major authors class. Or how about a film or media analysis from a rhetoric or folklore class? Perhaps you have a research essay from an English Teaching class, or a great QRG you want to share. Or maybe you’ve done some excellent professional writing. 

Whether it’s an essay, a presentation, an online exhibition, a portfolio, a podcast, a thesis, a conference paper, a unit plan, or a visual artifact, if you’re proud of it, we’d love to hear about it.

Write a short description (200-ish words) of your project, including your thesis claim, findings, or big takeaway. Be sure to tell us the topic or texts you analyze as well. (Want to see an example? Go to the “Examples” page.) Then submit before midnight on January 15, 2024.
