Works in Progress:
An Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference
May 31, 2012
University of Cincinnati
Department of English & Comparative Literature
The English Department at the University of Cincinnati invites you to submit proposals for an interdisciplinary academic conference focusing on the value of sharing works in progress as a means to increase experimentation, build community, and test new ideas. Rather than soliciting finished products from participants, we seek work that shows its seams, represents thinking in action, invites revision, and resists closure. In other words, don't hide your process; advertise it.
The deadline for submission of proposals is March 30th, 2012. Send proposals and queries to email@example.com. Individual presentations should not exceed twenty minutes; panel presentations should plan for 80 minutes total (including Q&A time).
Mindful of the financial pressures we all face, there will be no fee to attend or present at this graduate conference.
