Symposium Day 2014

This year’s UMF Symposium Day saw presentations of literary, scholarly, and creative work by a variety of students in English or allied fields of study. English faculty also participated as project sponsors or as presenters. Below are a few snapshots from English-related presentations from Symposium Day 2014. I wasn’t able to take photographs of all the presentations due to a combination of being unable to be in two places at once and sometimes less than optimal lighting.
