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.

2016: Dislocation / Discovery

The theme of the 5th annual UCF English Symposium is “Dislocation / Discovery,” and we are pleased to welcome papers that explore the elasticity and interplay of this topic. Whether considering the physical dislocation of groups of people or examining the disappearance of gender, genre, or sexual absolutes, we intend to explore the cause and effect relationship and the changes that result from dislocation/discovery.

The University of Central Florida Department of English invites graduate students, alumni, and faculty in Literary, Cultural, and Textual Studies, Technical Communication, Rhetoric and Composition M.A. programs, M.F.A. in Creating Writing program, and Ph.D. in Texts and Technology program, as well as Honors in the Major (HIM) students, to apply to the fifth annual English symposium, a one-day conference on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2016. Graduate students, alumni, and faculty from the College of Arts and Humanities may also apply. (Non-HIM undergraduates interested in applying should submit an inquiry first). We welcome submissions that treat the theme of “Dislocation / Discovery” from a literary, cultural, textual, technological, creative, rhetorical, pedagogical, or interdisciplinary perspective. For more information, please view the Call for Papers listed below.
