Since our first conference was such a success, The University of North Caro=

#8220;What you working on?” for its second interdisciplinary conferen=
ce in English studies. We are each “Writing into the Profession&#822=
1; as we employ the theories and practices of effective English scholarship=
. This is not your usual CFP—we’re not asking you to bend your =
interests to suit a specific theme. Instead, we want you to use our confere=
nce as an opportunity to explore and enact just what it means to be part of=
 the English profession. Bring whatever you are currently working on and en=
gage in productive dialogue with other graduate students who are also begin=
ning to write themselves into the profession. Explore what it means to ent=
er English Studies as a professional as you present your work at a conferen=
ce, honestly engage your peer's work, and participate in a comfortable, ope=
n forum with current professionals who will answer questions you may have a=
bout the daily practices of scholars in our field. We invite you to share =
your current interests with us and encourage you to leave us with open-ende=
d questions to fuel discussion. =20
This conference is designed to provide area graduate scholars an opportunit=
y to share their current research among peers in a non-threatening and rece=
ptive academic environment. We hope to build a greater sense of community =
and create a useful dialogue among fellow graduate students. =20

etoric/Composition to Literature, from Theory to Practice. Please submit a =
