CFP – Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference – Univ. of R.I.

Check out the attached call for proposals: cfp grad con 2019


The University of Rhode Island

13th Annual Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference

April 13, 2019

Knowledge Across Borders: Conversations Among Disciplines 

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Solomon Friedberg, Department of Mathematics, Boston College

We would like to encourage graduate students from all disciplines to submit projects they are currently working on, or have completed in the past, which speak across disciplines and evoke conversations with scholars in other fields that might complement their work.

This conference has always been and will continue to be, an open forum for new critical methods, interdisciplinary projects, poster projects, and an amalgam of discussions that could lead to future collaboration. We ask that you keep our conference theme in mind when you submit an abstract, but you should not feel restricted if your work does not neatly fit into this framework.

Please note that we are also accepting creative work this year. There will be an open mic session for poets, fiction, and creative non-fiction writers.

For paper and poster presentations you should submit an abstract of 250-300 words to by February 1, 2019.

If you are a poet, please submit up to three poems that you would like to read during the open mic session. If you are a fiction or creative non-fiction writer please submit a piece between 500-750 words.

For Clements OMG

Folks, looking forward to seeing you soon! For our OMG meeting in my section, please come prepared to talk about the status of your Thesis project (whether you are in 3rd or 4th semester) and about two books of any kind, any genre that have been important to your evolution as a writer. If you can bring those books with you, all the better. If you were in my OMG in the Fall ’18 semester, please bring/talk about books other than what you used in the fall.
