Writing into the Profession: Enacting and Exploring Roles of the English
Scholar

Since our fist conference was such a success, The University of North
Carolina -Greensboro’s English Graduate Student Association again asks,
“What you working on?” for its second interdisciplinary conference in
English studies. We are each “Writing into the Profession” 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 conference 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 engage
in productive dialogue with other graduate students who are also beginning
to write themselves into the profession. Explore what it means to enter
English Studies as a professional as you present your work at a conference,
honestly engage your peer's work, and participate in a comfortable, open
forum with current professionals who will answer questions you may have
about 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-ended questions to fuel discussion.

This conference is designed to provide area graduate scholars an
opportunity to share their current research among peers in a
non-threatening and receptive academic environment. We hope to build a
greater sense of community and create a useful dialogue among fellow
graduate students.

Proposals will be accepted on any topic related to English Studies, from
Rhetoric/Composition to Literature, from Theory to Practice. Please submit
a one-page proposal describing your current project by May 31, 2007 via
email to: egsa_at_uncg.edu
