Frontiers and Borders
full name / name of organization:
Oklahoma State University English Graduate Student Association
Oklahoma State University’s English Graduate Student Association is pleased to announce a call for papers for Frontiers and Borders, its annual conference, to take place March 9-11, 2012 in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The conference will feature a keynote presentation on linguistic boundaries from distinguished linguistics scholar, Dr. Dennis Preston. There will also be a reading by Dr. Angie Estes, author of such books as Chez Nous and Tryst, finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize.
Frontiers and borders, in both the literal and metaphorical sense, represent new possibilities and restrictions. While we are most interested in papers that pertain in some way to this topic, EGSA welcomes papers on any topic of literature, film and screen studies, language, philosophy, popular culture, the teaching of writing, TESL, and/or English education. Creative writers are also welcome to submit works of poetry, drama, or fiction.
Although the EGSA conference is organized to meet the needs of graduate students, we welcome contributions from academics at all levels, including undergraduate students and first-time presenters, who are interested in participating in the academic community.
Please submit the title and a 250-300-word abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 20, 2012. Also, please let us know if you are interested in chairing a session, and consult our conference website for information on submitting your paper for the Outstanding Paper Award. Please note that all presentations should be kept to a twenty-minute maximum.
For information on accommodations, and for updates on the conference, please visit the EGSA website: http://english.okstate.edu/orgs/egsa/index.htm and e-mail email@example.com with any questions you may have.
