The deadline for submissions to UNCG's Graduate conference, Writing into
the Profession, has been extended to June 30th.

Since our first two conferences met with such success, The University of
North Carolina -Greensboro’s English Graduate Student Association again
asks, “What you working on?” for its third interdisciplinary conference
in English studies. We are each “Writing into the Profession” as we
employ the theories and practices of effective English scholarship. This
is not your usual CFPâ€"we’re not asking you to bend your interests to suit
a specific theme. Instead, we want you to use our conference as an
opportunity to explore and enact just what it means to be part of the
English profession. Bring whatever you are currently working on and
engage in productive dialogue with other graduate students who are also
beginning to write themselves into the profession. Explore what it means
to enter English Studies as a professional as you present your work at a
conference, honestly engage your peer's work, and participate in a
comfortable, open forum with current professionals who will answer
questions you may have about the daily practices of scholars in our
field. We invite you to share your current interests with us and
encourage you to leave us with open-ended questions to fuel discussion.

This conference is designed to provide area graduate scholars an
opportunity to share their current research among peers in a
non-threatening and receptive academic environment. We hope to build a
greater sense of community and create a useful dialogue among fellow
graduate students.

Proposals will be accepted on any topic related to English Studies, from
Rhetoric/Composition to Literature, from Theory to Practice. Please
submit a one-page proposal describing your current project by June 30,
2008 via email to: uncg.egsa.graduateconference_at_gmail.com
