About GSEA 

The Graduate Students in English Association is run by and for graduate students in the English Department at the University of California, Riverside. GSEA organizes the annual (dis)junctions graduate conference and  Multimedia Festival, produces the annual directory of faculty and graduate students, and funds mini-grants to partially defray conference travel expenses.  In addition, GSEA sponsors a mentoring program for incoming graduate students, helps with orientation, and organizes graduate students' roles in recruiting applicants and admits to the program.

GSEA also organizes three department parties each year and holds a series of fund-raising events among other activities, including bowling and karaoke nights. Since 2001, GSEA has sponsored the Marathon Read on campus.

Fundraiser for Travel Grants and (dis)junctions

The Graduate Students in English Association (GSEA) at UCR is raising money for conference grants and the annual (dis)junctions graduate conference.

Due to the UC budget cuts, graduate students have recently been forced to pay for their own (often out of state and even international) conference-related expenses. The GSEA tries to help graduate students by providing mini-grants to those who qualify in order to shoulder some of their expenses. The GSEA would appreciate your help. Any amount goes a long way.

Funding for Publications

Thanks to the fundraising of the previous two years, GSEA has been able to begin a new program that provides monetary awards for students who publish book reviews in a peer-reviewed publication.

Endurance for English

The Desert International Triathlon is world-renowned event at beautiful Lake Cahuilla in La Quinta. Nestled against the awesome Santa Rosa Mountaian, the course features a 3/4 mile swim in Lake Cahuilla, a 24 mile bike ride through La Quinta, and a 6.2 mile run circumscribing the lake. This year, Lorenzo Servitje, president of the Graduate Students in English Association, will compete in the race in the hopes raising funds to support gradaute student work and professionalization..
