20/21 C. Working Group

Convener: Peter Kalliney, William J and Nina B Tuggle Chair in English


The 20/21C. working group is a research collective here at the University of Kentucky English department.  Each year the convener will try to arrange a program of events for faculty and graduate students who study modern and contemporary literature and culture.  In addition to inviting scholars to visit our campus and talk about their research, we also invite graduate students and faculty to present their work in progress.  For information, please contact Peter Kalliney:


Funding for events is provided by the English Department and the Bryan, Davenport, and Tuggle chairs
