Designed to foster scholarship at the undergraduate level, this
conference provides a forum where undergraduates may exchange ideas,
creatively rework texts, and present research in a semi-formal setting.
Papers should be about 7-9 pages long (reading time about 15 minutes).
Each workshop and performance will be allotted 25-40 minutes, and
leaders need to plan their ideas and activities accordingly. E-mail
submissions are welcome.
The conference will start on Friday, March 16, and will include two
plenary speakers as well. Sessions will run through the day on Saturday,
and we will conclude with a post-conference party on Saturday evening.
