Call for papers, interdisciplinary symposium

Roze Brooks

The Undergraduate English Council and the English Graduate Student Association are hosting their second annual interdisciplinary symposium titled Articulating and Interrogating Identities.

 Works accepted cover a broad range of topics that support the theme including gender, race, class, sexuality, politics and creative writing. Students from any discipline are urged to submit papers that will be reviewed by a hybrid committee of the two organizations.

A 250-word abstract or general paper summary is due by March 1 at midnight.  Papers approved by the committee will be placed in panels of three-to-four students. Presenters should not prepare more than seven pages of material.

Panels will be designated a faculty member to moderate questions and discussion about the works being presented.

The symposium will be held on Saturday April 6 on the fourth floor of the Student Union.

Proposals should be sent via email to [email protected].
