The Graduate English Association (GEA) is an organization for all graduate students in the English department, regardless of program (Literature, Rhetoric/Composition, or Creative Writing) or funding status (TA, GA, fellowship, or otherwise). The organization conducts regular monthly meetings, and its purpose is to make recommendations to the faculty on departmental issues (instructor training, program changes, etc.) and to enrich the graduate experience with developmental workshops and social events.
Through this website, the GEA aims to provide an up-to-date resource base for the information and events that are important to Temple graduate English students, faculty, and the greater Temple and Philadelphia community.
Do you have an event you’d like to share? A program initiative that you would like to know more about? Please contact us! Send an email to TempleGEA@gmail.com with ideas, event promotions, and requests for information to spotlight on this homepage. We invite all members of the Temple Graduate English community to share program-specific, interdisciplinary, and regional items of interest for promotion on the site. We would love to hear about poetry readings, discussion groups, professional development seminars, teaching and vocational workshops, program Q&As, class projects, and other events and initiatives that GEA can help to support.
We also invite you to explore the resources we are currently offering on the site, and to contact TempleGEA@gmail.com with site-specific questions and suggestions. Bookmark the site, and check in often for new information and updates.
