Concordia English Graduate Colloquium

The Concordia English Graduate Colloquium, now in its sixteenth 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. This year’s theme, Animal Print, undertakes study of animals and animal bodies, as well as their intersections with the written or performed word.

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.


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. For our inaugural special issue, Insight collaborated with the Concordia English Graduate Colloquium to create a lasting archive of the innovative research and critical conversations happening around the topic of Animal Print. You can pick up a copy of Insight from our office in Concordia’s J. W. McConnell Building, room 666. Our first issue will also be launching online in July. For more details, please visit
