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 leading scholars such as Franco Moretti, Michael Warner, Lauren Berlant, Hortense Spillers, and D.A. Miller as keynote speakers. As the Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference, we have continued this tradition of preeminent keynote speakers, hosting such scholars as Aliyyah Abdur-Rahman, Mary Layoun, and Ann Laura Stoler.
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 seventh annual conference in October featured keynote speaker Ann Laura Stoler and presentations on the theme of “Reworking Labor.” We appreciate the contributions of all who attended and participated, making the conference another great success.
