[UPDATE] - CFP – So What?: Exploring the Implications of Humanities Studies in the 21st Century (Proposals due 11/15)
full name / name of organization:
North Carolina State University Association of English Graduate Students
The Association of English Graduate Students at NC State is pleased to announce the call for papers for our third annual graduate student conference, which will be held February 24-25, 2012.
In this conference, we wish presenters and participants to examine and explore the continued need for humanities studies, and the place of humanities studies in societies that increasingly value technological advances in communication.
We encourage graduate students from all areas of the humanities to submit and share their research. We welcome submissions that reframe existing and emerging research to interrogate the significance of humanities studies, and the possible trajectories of the fields that comprise the humanities in the coming decades.
In order to answer some of these questions, we are seeking submissions that address, but are not limited to, the following topics:
We welcome submissions from disciplines across the humanities: English studies, literature, linguistics, film studies, creative writing, scientific/technical writing, rhetoric & composition, cultural studies, interdisciplinary studies, and others.
Abstracts should be approximately 300 words. Presenters will be allowed 15 minutes to deliver papers.
Proposals for panel presentations are also welcome. They should include 3-4 proposals of 100 words briefly describing each paper as well as one 300-word proposal that ties everything together.
Email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 15, 2011. Include your name, institution, and course of study in the body of your email. Please remove all identifying markers on the abstract itself. We will send confirmations upon the receipt of your proposal.
Note: If you are an undergraduate who would like to be considered, you are required to submit both an abstract and a 10-12 page polished paper.
