Graduate Student, English, Lehigh University

I graduated from Moravian in 2009, and have since been continuing my studies at Lehigh University in hopes of becoming a professor. My honors project was incredibly helpful in my aspiration and, I suspect, helped me get into graduate programs. I also think the Medieval and Early Modern Conference is fantastic and superbly run. My presentation there provided experience giving conference presentations, writing appropriately clear and concise papers, etc. For current students, I would encourage reading theory and criticism outside of class in order to inform your understanding of literature studied in class. While it is true we get some coursework with this, it helped my writing tremendously to read academic writing that interested me at my own pace.
