New Voices on the Human Condition
Call for papers and special sessions
The New Voices Graduate Student Conference invites proposals that discuss the human condition.

How does the perception of the human condition change from century to century or from continent to continent? How has history or religion played a role in representing the human condition and what is this portrayal(s)? Papers can focus on all aspects of the human condition: social, physical, spiritual, and mental.
We welcome individual papers and session proposals.
We are looking for papers from the following disciplines:
English (literary studies, Rhet/Comp, Creative Writing)
Please send a 250-300 word proposal. Creative writers need to send a few stanzas of a long poem, an entire short poem, or one page of prose.
