As a student of English, your papers, projects, and discussions are contributing to a bigger conversation than just the other students in your class. One way to extend your papers into that global conversation in a tangible way is to present your work at conferences. On a small scale, you can submit your papers to NKU's very own Celebration of Student Research and Creative Activity. There are also opportunities outside of NKU's campus to perform and present scholarly research. The Institute for Student Research and Creative Activity, which hosts Celebration, has curated a list of opportunities for undergraduate students to present as well as advice on how to prepare once you've been accepted.
Below you can browse titles of presentations that students from our department have given, and get an idea of the wide variety of subjects our students are capable of taking on!
