This roundtable aims to help graduate students and junior faculty members in English become integrated into their departments. To feel at home there, they must figure out how to connect their own specializations to their colleagues' fields. The panelists will briefly suggest ways to meet this challenge, drawing on their long experience with English departments and on their personal efforts as scholars to connect various fields.
