Look who's turning 35?

EAPSU Description

The English Association of the Pennsylvania State Universities (EAPSU) is a regional professional organization whose members come from the faculty and students of the 14 state university English Departments in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE).  Click here for a list of member institutions.


EAPSU has been in existence since 1980 as an organization dedicated to excellence in English studies, and we have prided ourselves in being inclusive. Our conferences showcase the best in many disciplines within English Studies: composition, creative writing, literature, film, technical/scientific writing, and, of course, pedagogy.



EAPSU sponsors an annual Fall Conference for faculty and an annual Spring Conference for undergraduate English majors.


EAPSU Online
In 2004, EAPSU established a peer-reviewed online journal to supplement our conference and its proceedings. We wanted to continue our practice of allowing many voices to be heard at our conferences while enabling a more exclusive, competitive venue for scholarly and creative work.

We receive manuscripts from all over the world and have published a variety of material that might not have an audience without us. Each submission goes through a blind review process and is sent to two readers initially for input; marginal works are asked to resubmit with revision.
