full name / name of organization: 
Wiregrass Conference in English Studies
contact email: 

The conference is sponsored by Valdosta State University's English Graduate Student Association.

The complexities of literature and language studies can fragment graduate students to the degree that they lose sight of the commonalities among the components of their discipline. This conference seeks to reconnect us to the common allure of language, literature, and the contingent sub-disciplines that likely drew us to this multi-faceted field. We encourage submissions, especially from graduate students, on topics related to the conference theme.

Send your 300-word abstracts to Kristy Singletary at kmurphy@valdosta.edu by Friday, January 30, 2010. Selections will be announced via e-mail by Monday, February 15, 2010. Direct other inquiries to Darcy Fallon, Conference Coordinator, by contacting VSU's English Department at 229-333-5946.
