Call for Papers: SHOT Graduate Student Workshop, October 2017

SHOT invites applications from graduate students to present short papers (up to 10 pages, 1.5-spaced) at an intensive workshop embedded in the formal SHOT conference. The workshop will provide graduate students with an opportunity to develop their presentation skills and to receive extensive feedback on their work.  This is an exciting opportunity to become familiar with SHOT’s scholarly community before presenting a first official paper at a later SHOT conference as a candidate for the Robinson Price.

The workshop will be on a morning or afternoon October 27-28, 2017 (the annual meeting runs October 26-29). Each graduate student will present her or his paper and comment on another paper. The workshop will be mediated by John Krige (Georgia Institute of Technology), Arwen Mohun (University of Delaware), Jennifer Alexander (University of Minnesota), and Colin Garvey (RPI).

Proposal Format: One page in total, comprising name, contact, affiliation, paper title, and an abstract of up to 300 words. Graduate students may find “Guidelines to writing a good SHOT proposal” on the SHOT website helpful.

Send proposals by e-mail to SHOT.secretariaat@tue.nl with “Graduate Student Workshop” in the subject line.

***The deadline for proposals is April 15, 2017 ***
