  • EAPSU Annual Conference

We are proud to announce that our conference will be hosted by West Chester University on October 21 and 22. 

The theme for this year's conference is "Merging/Emerging/Re-Emerging: English Studies in an Ever-Changing Landscape." 

This year’s theme seeks to give voice to the ever-changing landscape of English studies and higher education in general and in the Commonwealth in particular while also being mindful of the re-emergence that we are all experiencing as we attempt to look beyond the pandemic to a return to a sense of normality/normalcy.

“Regeneration and Reflection”

The English Association of Pennsylvania State Universities (EAPSU) invites faculty and students at Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) universities, as well as outside of the PASSHE system, to its 41st annual conference, hosted by East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania. We invite faculty and students from across the PASSHE schools, as well as faculty and students from outside PASSHE, to discuss the theme of regeneration, the emergence and reckoning with the aftermath of the pandemic, and the psychic and physical toll the pandemic has taken on communities within and outside of PASSHE.

Registration is now open! Registration is $40 for faculty and free for students. Please click "Register" on this page to select your registration type and to be taken to our payment processor. 

Regeneration: What is the “new” normal?

This last year, we have often faced insurmountable challenges, loss, and grief to our professional and private lives due to the ravages of COVID. This year’s conference will focus on the theme of regeneration and its various forms and tonalities and ways we can move forward from the challenges that caused us to create new approaches to the study of English. Although we have been presented with a post-pandemic “future” or “normalcy” in the media, the dangers and stressors of pandemic-related challenges continue to affect how we build a more accessible and equitable pedagogy and how we, as individuals, grow in our professional and private lives. How do we define and adjust to a post-pandemic reality or new “normal”?

We hope to see you online on October 8th!
