Call For Papers – “So What?: Exploring the Importance and Implications of Humanities Studies in the 21st Century”
Third Annual Graduate Student Conference
The Association of English Graduate Students at North Carolina State University is pleased to announce the call for papers for our third annual graduate student conference, which will be held February 24-25, 2012, in Raleigh, NC.
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.
Proposals for individual presentations should be approximately 300 words.
Email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name and institution in the body of your email; please remove all identifying markers on your proposal.
Deadline: December 15, 2011
