Whatever degree we earned, we know the power of a good story. We all found inspiration in the great literary works we explored with dedicated faculty and classmates. The enduring and life-shaping benefits of those experiences call on us now to affirm the value of studying literature and writing then, now, and well into the future.
We are thrilled to let you know that our department will celebrate the 225th anniversary of literary studies at UNC-Chapel Hill in Fall 2021. Please save the date on your calendar! This reunion event will give you the opportunity to re-connect with the English and Comparative Literature Department and its mission through an exciting schedule of activities.
We anticipate hosting a widely-known alum keynote speaker, conversations with other notable alums, “return-to-the classroom” activities, musical entertainment, shared meals, and more. We hope you will attend, enjoy the events, and help us envision the future of our department. The generous contributions of our amazing students, faculty, alumni, and friends have provided the foundation for many years of great achievements.
We hope you will consider making a gift today to help us teach, write, and tell the stories of generations to come!
