English MA Student Research

Our English Master’s Students are Active Scholars!

As classes began in August 2016, English graduate students Susan Rojas and Savannah Jensen had the unforgettable opportunity to present at the prestigious Sixteenth Century Society Conference hosted this year in the historic city of Bruges, Belgium. The Sixteenth Century Society Conference hosted hundreds of scholars from all around the world. “The conference’s program guide still impresses me,” says Jensen. “It was a small book with over two–hundred pages of panels. There were panels on literature, art, religion, and history. When I attended panels that didn’t focus on literature, I felt like I was really getting a much broader understanding of what life was like in the sixteenth century.”
