About the Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

The Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference succeeds the Tufts English Graduate Organization Conference, a well-established and rigorous graduate student conference with over two decades of history. As the TEGO conference, we have hosted such generous scholars as Franco Moretti, Michael Warner, Lauren Berlant, Hortense Spillers, and D.A. Miller as keynote speakers, and as the Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference, we are working to develop the conference into an increasingly interdisciplinary event.

The Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference is organized entirely by graduate students. Our object is to provide graduate students with an opportunity to share their work with each other and to open the Tufts community to guests across disciplines and universities. We hope to continue the TEGO conference tradition by hosting faculty, students, and scholars from the Boston area, as well as paper presenters from across the continent.

Our fifth annual conference in October featured keynote speaker Aliyyah Abdur-Rahman and presentations on the theme of “Radical Kinship” and was a great success. We appreciate the contributions of all who attended and participated.
