The ENGL 6006: Research Methods class invites the English Department community to our final event of the semester.

On Thursday, December 17 at 7:00 p.m. in Chardón 318 the students enrolled in the course will be presenting their research proposals, which speak to a variety of current topics in English studies such as gender/class representations and identities, queer literature, language and power relations and new technologies and linguistic practices.

Here’s a preview of the presentations.  (For additional information, please see the flyer below or write to jocelyna.geliga@upr.edu)
