The global medieval and early modern world (broadly considered, c. 900-1750) underwent myriad profound changes, from devastating famines, plagues, and wars to an increased entanglement of the continents, economic transformations, and technological and scientific developments.

IUP English Graduate Organization
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 5, 2021

The year 2020 was an unprecedented year for many. We lived in a world of isolation from friends and family, deprivation of many normal activities (e.g. going out to a restaurant), and the constant state of paralyzing fear of getting sick or worse, watching our loved ones perish from the insidious virus that forced us all into a state of undesired pause. If we could only use one noun to describe the year that was 2020, it would be adversity. Where there is great adversity, there is great opportunity to rise like the mythological phoenix from the ashes to become stronger, greater, and more evolved.
