The English Department sponsors a variety of lectures, talks, and discussions each year. The English Lecture Series began in the 2010-2011 academic year, while the Majors Talk Series began in 2011-2012 as the brainchild of the Majors Committee. Various panels and discussions have included English major alums discussing the importance of the English major in their careers, as well as faculty describing their interest in the field of literature.
