Symposium

The purpose of this annual symposium is to capture a snapshot of the intergenerational and multifaceted contributions of students, alumni, and faculty to our dynamic learning community. In this one-day event, we seek not only to highlight the importance of the humanities in the university but also to foster a sense of shared discourse and intellectual collaboration and to celebrate all the different kinds of work that we do.

2018: Breaking Boundaries & Making Spaces

Our lives are defined by the spaces we inhabit, whether these are physical or virtual, real or imaginary. Our identities, experiences, and perspectives are shaped by myriad boundaries—those that circumscribe or exclude us and those that we transgress or transcend.  

The UCF Department of English invites faculty, students, and alumni from all English programs, as well as related programs such as the PhD in Texts & Technology and the MA in Rhetoric & Composition to apply to the Seventh Annual English Symposium, Breaking Boundaries and Making Spaces. Conference organizers encourage proposals for presentations that take a wide variety of critical, pedagogical, and creative approaches to the theme of spaces and/or boundaries.

Submission deadline for proposals is Friday, January 19, 2018. Please email a 250–300 word abstract for a 15–20 minute scholarly presentation or creative reading to UCFES2018@gmail.com. In your email include: name, paper title, department and/or program affiliation, audio-visual requirements for your presentation, and a brief bio (150 words max) citing professional accomplishments and research/creative interests. Undergraduate applicants should also include a brief statement of support from a faculty mentor.
