Humanities Panels

Call for Papers!

If you are interested in participating in the Humanities Panels, email Jonathan Silverman by Tuesday, March 29 with the following information:

  1. Your Name
  2. Title of Paper
  3. 250-word abstract of paper/research project. An abstract is a summary of the work you want to present.
  4. Professor/Advisor's name
  5. Your email contact information

Students will be informed of their panel assignment and time/location by April 15. The panels will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 20 in the English Department in O'Leary Library.

If you have a short paper, fictional work, a poem or video that is not in a formal academic paper, email to inquire about possible inclusion in a panel geared to those formats.

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.
