Call for papers - Spring Colloquium
Call for Papers - Deadline January 15, 2016
Concordia University’s Liberal Arts College and Vanier College’s Liberal Arts Program are pleased to announce the 2016 Spring Colloquium: On Love, April 1-2, 2016.
The Liberal Arts Spring Colloquium invites proposals for papers and presentations which discuss the use, misuse and abuse of love in literature, history, politics, art, religion, philosophy and all disciplines closely associated with the Liberal Arts.
This two-day Colloquium will take place on April 1 (at Concordia) and April 2 (at Vanier) and will include three panels on each day with three papers (of no more than 20 minutes) per panel, together with 30 minutes for questions and discussion.
Of the six panels, one will be devoted to student papers, while the remaining panels will allow faculty to present current research. Hence, this call for papers envisions/seeks 15 faculty papers and three student papers.
Each panel will be chaired by one faculty member and one student, and papers will be assigned to panels based on overlapping content, context, discipline or time period. The colloquium planning committee will issue a call for chairs once panel topics have been determined. All interested parties are encouraged to participate.
We hope to present papers of the highest quality. Selection of proposals will be based on relevance to the theme, quality and clarity of argument and uniqueness of topic.
Proposals should be no longer than 150 words and should include (in the header):
- Your name
- Faculty or discipline
- Status (faculty, fellow, researcher, student)
Please send proposals to Timothy Budde, firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2016.
