The EGSA, a student group officially acknowledged by the University, includes all graduate students in the English Department at Northeastern, but primarily functions as a small group of elected representatives. Its mission is to ensure and improve the quality of the graduate programs, promote the professional development of graduate students, develop policies and procedures that benefit graduate students, encourage faculty-student communication, and foster collegiality among members of the department through cooperation between graduate students, faculty and staff in the English Department.
Elected representatives conduct monthly meetings, open to any and all graduate students, where announcements and reports are made by the executive members and representatives of the EGSA. The EGSA also works in conjunction with the Graduate Student Government (GSG), the graduate student government that includes all departments at Northeastern. For more information, please contact the EGSA at northeasternEGSA@gmail.com.

The Northeastern Comics Studies Group is a faculty and graduate student group devoted to the study of comics, image-texts, and visual cultures more broadly. Meeting three to five times a semester, the group seeks to strengthen the scholarly comics community at Northeastern through workshopping, reading groups, discussions, and invited speakers, as well as through group visits to lectures, conferences, and comics expositions. All are invited to attend meetings, get to know Northeastern’s growing comics scholar community, and learn something new!
For any questions, please connect with Cailin Roles at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The American Literatures and Cultures group is an organization dedicated to sharing and workshopping scholarship from the department’s Americanists. We meet once a month to hear new scholarship and offer feedback on current graduate projects.

The Writing & Rhetoric group holds monthly meetings for faculty and graduate students interested in rhetoric, composition, and literacy. Our goal is to foster a community of peers and mentors through our shared research interests. The agenda can consist of planning for upcoming conferences, workshopping papers and presentations, and sharing recent scholarship while enjoying light refreshments.
For any questions, please connect with the coordinator of the group, Rachel Molko, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
