This course serves as the second half of the capstone experience for students completing the English major’s concentrations in Literary Studies and in Film and Literary Studies. Students will work independently to develop a project proposed in ENG 411 into a theoretically informed research thesis of substantial length. The goal is to produce work for public presentation or for publication in an undergraduate journal or comparable venue. The course will also include professional training in the processes of conference and publication submission and review. The Senior Project Workshop will be conducted as a combination of workshop with other course members, independent study, and one-on-one mentoring.
