Kirsch Graduate Student Symposium: Call for Proposals

Beckman Institute, Room 1005 (405 N Mathews Ave. Urbana, IL 61801)

Event Type: Seminar/Symposium

We are inviting Graduate students at any stage from Linguistics, Communications, English, and Education to present on topics of interest within writing, literacy, discourse, rhetoric, composition, education, media, and communication. Presenters are welcome to share their work through their preferred presentation type (i.e. individual papers, in-progress projects, reflective presentations, videos, Pecha Kucha, panels, roundtables, posters, workshops, performative presentations, collaborative panels, other multimodal presentations, or experimental projects).

This symposium is a great opportunity for graduate students to present their work-in-progress and ideas and to receive feedback from an interested group of peers and faculty in a supportive environment. In the past, presentations have taken the form of adapted seminar papers, research-in-progress, excerpts from dissertation research, and more. In addition, many students have used this symposium as a means of piloting new ideas to be shaped into conference presentation or publications as well. And it also is a great line to add to your forever-growing CV!
