We are eager for paper proposals for our INTER-DISCIPLINARY graduate student conference organized by the English Department at the University of Victoria, to be held March 14-15, 2008.
The theme for the 2008 conference is “Talking out the Trash.” We are interested in papers that investigate how trash becomes treasure – or the reverse – how the once salvaged discard can become rare, and how rarity adds value. Please visit the conference website for more specific topic suggestions.
WE NEED MORE SUBMISSIONS FROM UVIC STUDENTS. We have had some interest from students at other universities, but are hoping to see more work from our own! This is a great opportunity for UVic graduate students to get some reading experience for larger conferences. If you have a paper that you think fits this year's conference theme in any way, please BE BRAVE and submit your work for consideration.
Proposals of 250 words, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, and university affiliation, should be sent to tst(at)uvic.ca by January 15, 2008. WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING TO EXTEND THIS DEADLINE & WILL SEND THE NEW DATE WHEN AVAILABLE. Only email submissions will be accepted.
