University of Maryland’s School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures Graduate Student Conference

Perspectives on Power: Textual and Cinematic Representations

Friday, March 27, 2015 – Sunday, March 29, 2015

 

The School of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at the University of Maryland, College Park invites paper proposals for our biennial Graduate Student Colloquium. This interdisciplinary conference will address perspectives on power and all its implications within, but not limited to, political, literary, cinematic and cultural contexts, as well as linguistics and Second Language Acquisition studies. We welcome papers from graduate students of the humanities and encourage works that take an interdisciplinary approach and consider intersections of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, resistance, disability, nation, empire, class, civil rights, labor, and religion, among others.  

Proposal Guidelines

Papers and panels on all aspects of literature and film within the humanities will be considered. Interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged. Presentations should be limited to 20 minutes (approximately 8 pages double-spaced).

Abstracts and panel proposals should not exceed 250 words and must be submitted in English by email (in .doc or .pdf format) to umdsllcgradconf@umd.edu by Friday, January 9, 2015.

Panel or roundtable proposals should include the title, the organizer's name and contact information, and the names and affiliations of the presenters. In addition to the group proposal, each individual panelist must submit his or her abstract individually in order to be entered into our system for email updates.

We look forward to your proposals!

* We are unable to provide travel funding or scholarships but extend an opportunity for housing with UMD graduate students on a first come, first serve basis around the Washington, D.C. area. Please indicate in your abstract submission email if you would like to apply for housing.
