Ongoing projects:

Rutgers English Diversity Institute:  Are you currently working with an undergraduate who shows great promise in literary study and is considering graduate school in English but doesn’t know much about it?  REDI is designed to encourage current students and recent graduates from diverse cultural, economic, and ethnic backgrounds to consider graduate study.  Students participate in a week of intensive seminars, including a visit to the Schomburg Library and attending a play in New York city.  Students receive a $500 stipend for participating in the program.
