University of Arkansas Graduate Students in English Conference 2023
LABOR AND WORK AS THEY WERE, AS THEY ARE, AND AS THEY MIGHT BE
The University of Arkansas Graduate Students in English are excited to announce their annual conference. This year’s theme is LABOR AND WORK: AS THEY WERE, AS THEY ARE, AND AS THEY MIGHT BE. This theme spotlights the productivity of typically marginalized aspects of the human community in ways which build understanding of intrinsic value.
