About TiLC

UIC Talks in Literatures and Cultures (TiLC) is an effort to engage our own students, faculty and invited guests in academic development. Our sessions provide the opportunity to present research on different fields, creating a perfect environment for critical and constructive literary debate. Each semester TiLC brings a number of academic speakers from around the United States. TiLC also encourages MA and PhD students to submit abstracts for consideration in our series of talks – our Roundtable sessions (once per semester) are specifically designed for MA/PhD students to receive feedback from peers in their field.
