CALL FOR PAPERS! — Deadline Extended
Winter 2011 Graduate Student Roundtable : Tuesday, February 15th, 2011, South Hall 2617
Deadline for Abstract Submissions — EXTENDED: January 14th, 2011 (end of second week of classes).
If your abstract is selected, please be prepared to submit your paper or presentation for review by the CLTC board by January 28th.
The CLTC Theme this year is “Aesthetic Mutations,” and we are seeking papers on related research or projects that pertain to the intersections between literature or other media forms, critical theory, and other cultural objects and practices. Applicants should plan for a twenty-minute presentation (usually around 8-9 pages), followed by ten minutes of discussion. This colloquium presents an excellent opportunity for graduate students in the humanities to practice delivering conference papers in a relaxed, constructive, and amicable environment. Presenters are subsequently eligible to apply for CLTC travel grants to help defray the costs of participating in national conferences.
Submissions should include the following:
1.) Name, department, and level (1st year, 2nd, ABD etc.)
2.) Approximately 300 word abstract of paper.
Please send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with CLTC WINTER COLLOQUIUM in the subject line by January 14th, 2011.
