Student Showcase - Humanities Futures: Call for Submissions

The organising committee for Encounters seeks submissions from CHASE scholars at any stage who would like to present their work at the next Encounters Conference in December. We welcome abstracts for 10 minute presentations, readings and performances. The theme of the conference is ‘Humanities Futures’ and we particularly welcome abstracts that link your work with the future of research, education more generally, and within your discipline. 

Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words and emailed to Dr Matthew Grant, CHASE Encounters lead at Essex: 

Interdisciplinary perspectives, readings, and performances encouraged!  For all submissions, please include details of your audio visual requirements, your current year of study and home institution. For creative readings, please send a short example of your work. For suggestions of performance based pieces, please detail what support you would need to facilitate these.

Deadline for submissions: 15th November 2017.
