The Anne P. Kahana Memorial Lecture

The annual keynote address at the Stony Brook English Graduate Conference is supported by the Anne P. Kahana Memorial Fund.  Pat Kahana was an outstanding Ph.D. student in the English Department at Stony Brook whose dissertation, Illness, Health, and the Romantic Subject: An Intergeneric Study was published, and her degree awarded, after her untimely death in 1991.

A fund in Pat’s memory was announced after her passing:

“The Kahana Lecture will commemorate Pat’s extraordinary efforts in leading the 1990 Conference as well as the many other ways her energy, dedica­tion, and compassion enhanced the English Department and Stony Brook communities.”
