Panel Organizer: Leigha McReynolds

This panel solicits proposals for Ignite talks which derive their inspiration from the symposium topic, "Post-ing: What Comes After." Ignite talks, named after the event for which they were developed, are five minutes long and accompanied by exactly 20 slides. Each slide is featured for 15 seconds and then automatically advanced. Successful abstract submissions will explain how the subject of the Ignite talk contributes to or reflects on the symposium theme and how this specific format will be conducive to the development of these ideas. The hope is that this panel will generate a Q&A that discusses not only the content presented but the relationship between content and form. Anywhere from six to twelve abstracts can be accepted. Panel participants will have the voluntary opportunity to workshop and practice their presentations with their fellow panelists prior to the date of the symposium.

This panel is for participation in the George Washington University's English Graduate Student Association's symposium, "Post-ing: A Symposium on What Comes After." Please submit a brief abstract of no more than 250 words to Leigha McReynolds at lhm@gwmail.gwu.edu by November 30, 2013.
