Volume XXXI of the Shawangunk Review features the proceedings of the 2019 English Graduate Symposium, “200 Years of Frankenstein,” directed by Associate Professor Jackie George. On behalf of the Graduate Program, we want to thank all of the participants, including our invited speaker, Dr. Jared Richman of Colorado College, for their contributions to this issue. Thanks are also due to Andrew Higgins, English Department Chair, for his support of the event.
The submission deadline for Volume XXXII of the Review is December 15, 2020. We welcome poetry, book reviews, and critical essays concerning any area of literary studies. Please see submission guidelines in this issue if you would like to submit your work. In that issue we will have a special section for poetry and prose commemorating Dr. Pauline Uchmanowicz, in whose honor the Symposium is being held in 2020. Please submit your contributions to this section by the same December 15 deadline.
Special thanks to Joann Deiudicibus, who joins us as guest poetry editor in this volume, and to Prof. Dan Kempton, who helped judge the annual essay contest. Thanks also to Samantha Grober, English Department Graduate Assistant, for her work on the volume.
