The Department of English & Linguistics held their annual Graduate Student Colloquium on April 14. Jan Venderly presented “Japanese EFL Students: A Study in Sociolinguistic Competence and Confidence,” and Paige Hill presented “Sowing the Self Back Together: How Stories Heal Trauma.”
Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies Lewis Roberts commented on the importance of the event: “The English & Linguistics Graduate Student Colloquium is my favorite annual event because it gives us a chance to show off the excellence of our M.A. students. Each year we invite some of our students to share their research and writing in a professional conference setting, and it’s always so wonderful to hear the variety of projects and interests that they bring to our program. The colloquium helps them hone their presentation skills and helps us promote graduate student research at IPFW.”
