Mark your calendars! The date for the 2011 St. John’s English Graduate Student Conference has been changed to Saturday, April 16. The conference will be held on the Queens campus from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Please note, the deadline for conference proposals has also been extended to Monday, February 28.
Proposals are welcome on any topic related to literary, cultural, and writing studies. This includes proposals for creative writing presentations. We are seeking proposals for group panel presentations and individuals 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 Dr. Lowney.
