Proposals Due: January 23, 2009
The 2009 Robert & Susan H. May Student Humanities Conference invites proposals on the theme of “Never Finished: Exploring, Envisioning and Re-defining the Creative and Scholarly Process." The conference will be held Saturday, March 28th in Ruffner Hall at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia.
This is a conference for students by students with the hope to establish an ongoing Undergraduate and Graduate dialogue that promotes learning and community across the humanities through examination of cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural, contemporary issues.
The conference topic is open to all disciplines and encourages interdisciplinary panels. Appropriate discipline areas include, but are not limited to, languages and literature, history, philosophy, music, art, film studies, anthropology, creative writing and cultural studies. We encourage proposals from disciplines such as new media and multimedia studies, literary science, linguistics and other social sciences, where these overlap with the humanities.
We look forward to conversations about factors that contribute to the creative and scholarly process such as gender, class, religion, the self and culture. What does a work in progress mean, and are we ever finished with a piece? Presentation proposals should be limited to six hundred words.
