The Carolina Emerging Scholars Conference

Celebrating the world's greatest love stories has long been the subject of authors, painters, musicians, dancers, moviemakers, and critics. The Carolina Emerging Scholars Conference is pleased to accept papers on the theme of "Deathless Love," ranging from the story of Heloise and Abelard to Wuthering Heights and the Twilight series, and dealing with any genre from poetry to the movies. We would be particularly interested in interdisciplinary papers making connections between two or more genres, for instance, literary or historical love affairs immortalized in visual art or music, the historical and literary intersections of Spiritualism, and cross-cultural notions of love beyond death.

The second annual Carolina Emerging Scholars Conference is open to all undergraduate, graduate, and independent scholars, and seeks proposals for papers which emphasize and explore the study of the humanities.

Abstracts of no more than 250 words are due by March 1, 2013. Abstracts should include name, title of paper, institution, and contact information. For complete panel proposals, please list topics and titles of papers and an explanation of how these papers fit together. Also, please provide an abstract from each proposed panel member. Decisions will be made by March 31, 2013. Conference details will be emailed to participants upon acceptance.
