The purpose of this annual symposium is to capture a snapshot of the intergenerational and multifaceted contributions of students, alumni, and faculty to our dynamic learning community. In this one-day event, we seek not only to highlight the importance of the humanities in the university but also to foster a sense of shared discourse and intellectual collaboration and to celebrate all the different kinds of work that we do.

2017: Agents & Agency: Problematizations in Restraint, Autonomy, and Identity

Agents & Agency: Problematizations in Restraint, Autonomy, and Identity” is the theme of the 6th annual UCF English Symposium, and we are pleased to welcome papers that interrogate issues of agency in the dynamics of class, race, gender, identity, sexuality, power, or discourse. Whether considering groups of agents or a single agent, we seek to explore how agency affects or modifies individuals and how agents interact with the mechanisms of power and contribute to the dialogue of struggle and change. 

The University of Central Florida Department of English invites graduate students, alumni, and faculty in Literary, Cultural, and Textual Studies, Technical Communication, Rhetoric and Composition M.A. programs, M.F.A. in Creating Writing program, and Ph.D. in Texts and Technology program, as well as Honors in the Major (HIM) students, to apply to our symposium, a one-day conference on February 10, 2017. Graduate students, alumni, and faculty from the College of Arts and Humanities may also apply. (Non-HIM undergraduates interested in applying should submit an inquiry first)
