The English Graduate Organization (EGO) is a social and pre-professional organization for graduate students of the University of North Florida's English Department.
The EGO co-hosts the Annual English Graduate Student Conference, holds readings of critical and creative writing, and organizes sessions to discuss topics of interest to graduate students.
The EGO provides graduate students a chance to contribute to the life of the department and the university. In addition, the EGO is a way for students to advise and help one another navigate their way through the graduate studies program.
Since 2000, the English Graduate Program and the EGO have sponsored a graduate English conference every year in which current graduate students and alumni deliver scholarly papers.
The event gives students and alumni experience in one of the central activities of university-level critical writing. Starting in 2009, EGO and the program will expand to two conferences per year, one in the Fall, the other in Spring. A free lunch is served.
Students should ask the instructors of their 6000-level courses whether they would be willing to give credit for presenting a paper. Instructors in turn are discouraged from grading the presentations. All students in the program should try to deliver a paper at least once.
A handout, "Some Thoughts on Writing and Delivering a Conference Paper," is available from Graduate Coordinator, Jason Mauro, upon request.
