Date Change for St John’s Graduate Conference: Sat April 16

The 2011 St. John’s English Graduate Student Conference will be held on Saturday, April 16.  The conference will be held on the Queens campus, 9:00-3:30.  
The deadline for proposals has been extended to Monday, February 28.  

Proposals on any topic related to literary, cultural, and writing studies are welcome.  This includes proposals for creative writing presentations.  We are seeking proposals for group panel presentations and individual presentations, and we encourage panel and presentation formats that will generate dialogue among the panelists and between the panelists and their audience.

Proposals for individual presentations should be one-page abstracts of what you plan to present at the conference.  Proposals for group panels should include one-page summaries of each presentation as well as a brief (one-page) rationale for the panel.  Each session will last about an hour, so you should plan on brief individual presentations (about 15-20 minutes) and panels of three people to leave enough time for dialogue.

Please submit proposals to Dr. Sicari’s office or by email to John Lowny, Director of Graduate Studies (  

We look forward to seeing your proposals & to the conference!
