Please join us for a celebration of the cultural life of the St Johns River and community documentary by attending our show of short documentary films of the people who live by and from the river. Born from an ambitious oral history project initiated by the UNF history department and the St Johns Riverkeeper, the show aims to paint a varied portrait of river people: distance swimmers, neighborhood activists, disabled adaptive rowers, shrimpers, algae, artists, a permaculture farm, the Mayport Ferry deckhand, and more.

Conference Schedule - EGO Spring 2013 Conference
Location: Student Union (West Building), Room 3703 A/B
A post-conference talk-back will be held at 9:30 pm at J. Alexander's Restaurant at the St. John's Town Center.
Novelist and activist Salman Rushdie observed, "Literature is where I go to explore the highest and lowest places in human society and in the human spirit, where I hope to find not absolute truth but the truth of the tale, of the imagination and of the heart." The exploration of literature provides a unique insight into the human condition, and the celebration of its scholarship is essential. The English Graduate Organization (EGO) at the University of North Florida is pleased to announce its spring conference, which will be held April 22nd, 2013.The purpose of this conference is to recognize the exploration of literature in Northeast Florida, through scholarship as well as the language arts. It is an opportunity for students, graduate and undergraduate, as well as professors to share their ideas, scholarship, and art with likeminded individuals in this strange little territory of the Deep South.
Please contact EGO president Nick Michaud for more information.
