Department Show

Each spring LAS organizes a multimedia exhibition that showcases the range and diversity of work completed in or inspired by classes in the department. Often exploring the relationship between word and image, these outstanding examples of student work range from analytical research papers to digital poetry to installations that combine text and other media. Readings, performances and a publication of selected writing projects add engaging elements to the opening night festivities.

E101 Prize

Almost every incoming student takes the department’s required E101 course Literature Seminar: Design in Words. Each year at Convocation the department awards the E101 Prize to a student who writes the best essay — one combining critical acumen, literary sophistication and a clear, individual and original voice.
