EAPSU 2023 Conference a Success

The conference, held at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, was attended by approximately 55 people and featured a compelling keynote on Saturday night.

Who We Are

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).  

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. Our bylaws can be found here.


EAPSU sponsors an annual Fall Conference for faculty and an annual Spring Conference for undergraduate English majors. The Call for Papers for those conferences, along with other conference information, can be found under the Annual Conferences tab.

Impost (Formerly EAPSU Online)

In 2004, EAPSU established a peer-reviewed online journal called EAPSU Online to supplement our conference and its proceedings. In 2016, we decided to rename the journal Impost. We want 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. For additional details, please visit the related pages on this site.
