The Department of English is expanding opportunities for students to get involved and to stay in touch. We have an email list, a Facebook page, a Moodle site, and hope to get our thriving English Club started back up now that we're past pandemic protocols.
The English Department sponsors three Midday Musings events each semester for the benefit of English majors primarily, though all are welcome. Each talk focuses on a topic of interest to English majors, like "Research and Inspiration," "Vampires in Lit, and "Poetry of the Divine and Profane." Speakers are faculty members, internship supervisors, students, alum, local writers, and others involved in the literary life of New Orleans.
Spring 2023 dates include February 15, March 15, and April 19. Spring speakers include award-winning author and UNO alum Maurice Carlos Ruffin, author of The Ones Who Don’t Say They Love You, recently chosen by One Book, One New Orleans as the 2023 selection. All events will take place in Liberal Arts room 197.

The English Club
The English Club has sponsored many events, such as workshops with local authors and student readings.
The club also partners with Loyola University New Orleans and Tulane University in the 1718 series of readings at the Columns Hotel on St. Charles Ave. Students interested in joining the English Club should watch their email for announcements.
