Fieldnotes CFP

fieldnotes

The GES is excited to announce that it is continuing the Speaker Series, Fieldnotes, which had its inaugural run in the winter of 2017. Fieldnotes is designed to highlight all that is ground-breaking, creative, and outstanding in the scholarship of the Department of English’s graduate students. Designed to spark conversation and debate, this series will take the form of lectures ranging from 15 to 20 minutes which will be accompanied by a brief response from another member of Western’s scholarly community, typically a faculty member or graduate student working in the same field. Our intent in establishing this event is to offer graduate students a chance to engage the broader community in their note-worthy research and strengthen the academic community as well as their individual resumé.

To this end, the GES is currently accepting brief proposals from those interested in presenting their research (350 words max.). Please forward any proposals via e-mail to Sidra Khan, GES Academic Coordinator, by the 17th of February. We encourage submissions from students at all points of study—whether you’re a new MA student, a PhD candidate days away from defense, or anywhere in between.

We are excited for this further chance to celebrate the work done by our graduate community and are looking forward to hearing from you!
