"Do You Hear Me Now?" An Anthology of Mental Health Journeys

"Do You Hear Me Now" An Anthology of Mental Health Journeys is an ebook that includes a "collection of poetry, long-form writing, and artwork by individuals of diverse ages, genders, races and sexual orientations." Those included in the anthology were inspired by Ajay Heble's Literature and Social Change course during the Winter 2020 semester and decided to use the medium of storytelling to reduce social stigma surrounding mental health and empower people to feel safe when speaking or writing about their mental health journeys. 


Even in these strange times, exams and papers go on! 

The School of English and Theatre Studies congratulates the following students who successfully defended their theses online in the age of Covid-19:
