Announcement and Call for Papers

The English Department is excited to announce its second annual conference, a day to bring together faculty and graduate students in our TESOL, Composition, Linguistics, and Literature concentrations. We are pleased to continue this forum for collaboration and shared learning, as we explore the ways our disciplines overlap and inform our research and pedagogy.

We are seeking proposals from graduate students, tenure track faculty, and lecturers across disciplines. All are welcome!


Session Formats

We’re looking for interactive sessions that spark discussion and collaboration. Participants can present research projects, facilitate a workshop on a classroom activity, give a reading of their creative work, or lead a roundtable discussion on a topic of their choice. Sessions are in 60 minute blocks. Participants should submit proposals for 15 minute individual presentations or indicate if they need longer – up to 30 or 60 minutes for workshops and discussions.


Call for Proposals:

Please submit a proposal for your session (approximately 250 words) by Wednesday, April 24th, using the link on our website (http://bit.ly/engconf19). Acceptances will be sent by April 26th.
