SUPRA postgraduate conference
Wed 1st - Fri 3rd October 2008
CALL FOR PAPERS
We are pleased to announce the third SUPRA CONNECT cross-disciplinary postgraduate conference. CONNECT 2008 will take place between the 1st and 3rd of October. All Sydney Uni coursework and research postgraduate students are invited to submit a 300 word abstract for a proposed paper or poster. The conference will not be themed, however we encourage you to present your work in a way that is accessible to a non-specialist audience and to consider the relevance of your work to an audience beyond the academy.
In the interest of generating constructive commentary and debate, we encourage you to approach friends or colleagues to present on a panel with you. Your panel may address a particular theme or showcase a range of work in your area. Papers should generally be 20 minutes in length, however shorter papers are also welcome. While we would prefer you to organize an appropriate panel, we will also consider papers submitted individually.
SUPRA’s annual postgrad CONNECT conference is not just interested in traditional academic papers. Are you at the Con or SCA? Are you a poet or creative writer? Our aim is to showcase the breadth of postgrad work at Sydney Uni and to promote interdisciplinarity across campuses. How you would like to showcase your creative work is only limited by your imagination - we are interested in all types of visual art, installations, multimedia, creative writing, readings, poetry and musical interludes.
Please send abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 15th August. Also, please indicate any AV requirements that your paper/panel/poster will require. Abstracts submitted without registration will not be considered.
Registration for CONNECT 2008 is free. Please complete the registration form and return it by email before registration closes on Friday 19th September.
