Graduate English Association

All graduate students in English are automatically members of the Graduate English Association (GEA). The GEA Executive Committee, elected by the members each spring, organises and promotes social and cultural events, from the popular pub nights and the softball team, Chapman's Homer, to monthly reading groups, such as the Twentieth-Century and Cultural Studies groups. The Executive is the students’ liaison with the departmental administration, representing their concerns and opinions about funding, courses, and other graduate issues. The GEA meets twice a semester to discuss these issues, to plan pub nights, and to explore planning other possibilities such as a conference, a magazine and whatever other ideas the members bring to the table.
