Concordia English Graduate Colloquium

The Concordia English Graduate Colloquium, now in its eighteenth year, is an annual academic conference run by graduate students in Concordia University’s English Department. The aim of this conference is to provide students the opportunity to share their research with peers and faculty and to engage in fruitful dialogue. The 2020 theme, The Aesthetics of Anxiety, examines the complex relationships between the senses, the affective, and the physical reactions to a myriad of events and entities that continue to solicit what can only be termed as anxious responses.

Insight Journal

Insight is our newest journal that publishes the academic work of graduate students at Concordia and abroad, while also providing students experience with peer review.

Headlight Anthology

Headlight‘s mandate is to provide a unique publication opportunity for talented Concordia writers and visual artists. Many of the authors published in Headlight have gone on to have successful careers. Headlight functions as a vital part of the common, creative ground on which students and alumni of all disciplines across all Concordia departments can stand.

CEVA

The Committee for Equity and Visibility in Academia (CEVA) is an ad-hoc committee of graduate students, undergraduate students, and faculty members in the Department of English at Concordia University. As a committee, our goal is to invite dialogue between students, faculty, and administrators in order to shape future practices and policies that will lead to greater equity within the department and across the university.
