If one were asked to provide a single explanation for the growth of English studies in the later nineteenth century, one could do worse than reply, 'the failure of religion.' -- Terry Eagleton
Literature would begin wherever one no longer knows who writes and who signs the narrative of the call - and of the "Here I Am"- between the absolute Father and Son. -- Derrida

This Week: Welcome Back to our Quarter-Term Students!
| || |
We hope you've had a great and relaxing winter break. We've been working hard over the break to get plans in place for the winter and spring terms, and we're excited to share them.
First: Some Bookkeeping
Has your group's leadership changed from the fall? We'd really like to be in touch with the current leaders of your group - and you can help us do that. Just send us an email with the names and email addresses of your new leaders (and let us know which leaders are cycling off), and we'll get things updated for you.
Winter Recruitment for Your Group
The beginning of the winter term is as important as the beginning of the fall quarter for recruiting new members for your group. This is a great time to take on your campus with an armload of catchy flyers (check out the Flyer Exchange for some ideas), set up a table (on the quad or in a student union), and encourage your members to bring their friends. A kick-off meeting or social can also help bring in new interested students.
