Programs and Research
English majors have conducted research and pursued creative projects with faculty members through the Furman Advantage Research Fellowship Program. For more information on this program, consult the Undergraduate Research and Internships site at http://www.furman.edu/engaged/index.htm
Recent student-faculty projects have included study of Victorian spiritualism, science, and psychic detection; research into Renaissance portraiture in book frontispieces, an exploration of psychoanalytic readings of Faulkner’s Absalom, Absalom;
writing and editing poems with the department’s poets; a comparison of Western and Nonwestern subjectivities; and assisting in important bibliographic work in Old English Studies.
In addition, English majors have presented their scholarly or creative projects at Furman Engaged!, the National Conferences on Undergraduate Research, the annual British Studies Student Symposium at Rhodes College, the Sigma Tau Delta International Convention, and the Southern Literary Festival.
