The English Graduate Student Association
is presenting its 15th annual research conference
Significations, which will be held on
Saturday, April 24th, 2010 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM in the
University Student Union. As a showcase for graduate
research and writing, this conference has witnessed an
increase in state-wide participation over the years. In addition to
presentations from our own CSULA students, we will be hosting a number of
students from throughout the CSU system.
We are very excited to welcome this
year's keynote speaker, UCLA professor Eric Avila who will be sharing some of his latest
work in a talk entitled "The End Was Near: Los Angeles and National
Decline between Watts and Watergate."
We invite all students as well as family members and
friends to attend panels throughout the day. All panels and the keynote
address are free and open to the public.
For those who wish to register as participants in the conference,
the conference fee is $20. Participants are welcome to join us for
continental breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon reception,
and will be provided with a digital copy of the conference proceedings.
Additional copies of the conference proceedings may be purchased for $5.
