The annual Anthony Ellis Scholarly Speakers Series, sponsored by WMU's Department of English, brings in academic speakers from all over the United States to share their scholarship with the department, the university, and the community. In addition to visiting scholars, this series also celebrates the achievements of our own faculty, recognizing two of our colleagues each year who have recently published books or otherwise contributed to their discipline in a significant way.
