Novelist and activist Salman Rushdie observed, “Literature is where I go to explore the highest and lowest places in human society and in the human spirit, where I hope to find not absolute truth but the truth of the tale, of the imagination and of the heart.” The exploration of literature provides a unique insight into the human condition, and the celebration of its scholarship is essential. The English Graduate Organization (EGO) at the University of North Florida is pleased to announce the call for abstracts for its spring conference, which will be held April 22nd, 2013.

The purpose of this conference is to recognize the exploration of literature in Northeast Florida, through scholarship as well as the language arts. It is an opportunity for students, graduate and undergraduate, as well as professors to share their ideas, scholarship, and art with likeminded individuals in this strange little territory of the Deep South.

EGO welcomes papers and creative works from all subjects within the collegiate English and Creative Writing programs in Northeast Florida. Abstracts should be approximately 300 words, and presentations should be no longer than 10 -12 minutes.

Email your submissions to james.beasley@unf.edu no later than March 22, 2013. Please remove all identifying markers on the abstract itself, which should be included as a word .doc attachment to your email. We will send confirmations upon the receipt of your proposal.

Thank you,

The English Graduate Organization, University of North Florida
