Effective Paper Presentation
All students participating in Humanities panel sessions will be presenting a paper. Papers will be organized into coherent sessions to the maximum extent possible. All sessions will be moderated by a faculty member who will keep the session moving and hold the presentation to a time limit.
In general, panels have a limited time for each presentation with a question or two specific to that paper and then try to reserve time at the end for general discussion. The time limit will depend on the number of papers per panel.
