St. Thomas hosts 22nd Annual Atlantic Academic Undergraduate English Conference

The 22nd Annual Atlantic Academic Undergraduate English Conference (AAUEC) is being hosted by St. Thomas University from March 15-17. The conference permits students from the Atlantic Provinces and the state of Maine to meet and exchange ideas while experiencing a different academic environment.

The conference is designed to promote academic excellence by providing students with the experience of presenting a paper to their peers in a formal conference setting. Organized by fourth-year English Honours student, Heather Gillett, conference highlights will include a performance of "The Taming of the Shrew" by the St. Thomas Early English Drama Society, and a reading by award-winning poet Matt Robinson.
