Like the first time around, this event will be organized by the MA students in the English Studies program, with backing by the department.
The conference will take place on June 7 and 8. The goal is to provide a forum for our young scholars to present their ideas and the results of their research in a public forum.
Members of the English Studies MA program are invited to suggest panels. In the next step, anybody can apply to present within one of these panels. The panel organizers will be responsible for the selection of papers.
The description of your panel suggestion should state the thematic range and/or the methodological focus of the presentations you would like to invite, as well as your name and email address. The descriptions should be about 200-300 words long.
Please send your suggestions for panels to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 30.
Once the panels are formed, a Call for Papers will be issued.
We will also need organizational help: to create a publicity poster, to organize the catering (coffee breaks), to document the conference, etc. Please write a short email to email@example.com if you are interested in participating.
In case you need some comic relief after our last production of The
Father, or while writing/marking term papers, the Schauspielgruppe
offers an evening of very British humour. This collection of hilarious
scenes illustrates that with or without electronic devices,
communication may fail in many ways.
Dates: March 16/17/20/21/22/23
