Sigma Tau Delta Conference 2020

The English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta (ΣΤΔ),  one of the oldest and most prestigious ongoing chapters in the nation, sponsors social, intellectual, and scholarly activities on campus throughout the year. For the last two years, Sigma Tau Delta has been able to send students to the national convention, where students present papers, participate in roundtables, or read their creative work.

 

This year, 10 students, who have created scholarly sessions in keeping with the theme of the convention will contribute their research to the conference.  The first session, The Technological Landscape: Grounds for Change, examines the “migration” of literature through digital technologies, and the second, Evolving Literature: Effects of Immigration on Literature, explores the ways in which ideas of immigration and diversity have helped form new and robust approached in 21st century literature.

 

Our students have been volunteering in literary events across campus, as well as creating new and original activities to work with children at the Levine wing of Atrium Health.  They have also been fundraising on campus with activities like the very successful “Blind Date with a Book.”

Still, it will take additional resources to send all 10 participants to the convention.  For that reason, Sigma Tau Delta is crowdfunding this spring to raise awareness and support of our trip to the National Convention. Funding will help cover the costs for these 10 students’ registration, travel, and accommodations.
