Revolt! – A Conference On/In Upheaval

Posted by Tim on March 11, 2019 in Event, Student Clubs

Attention Undergraduates,

The UB Undergraduate English Club is hosting the Fifth Annual
Undergraduate English Conference and is now seeking undergraduate
submissions for presentation. The theme for the conference is revolutions,
uprisings, and upheavals of all kinds, across historical periods and
disciplines. We welcome submissions examining revolutions or radical
change from historical, literary, anthropological, philosophical, or
other points of view. An ideal paper presentation might rely on Marxist
literary theory to relate an important work of literature to its social
setting, or compare historical instances of major political change to the
contemporary moment, for example.

The conference will be held on Friday, April 26 from 12pm to 6pm in
Clemens 120. Light refreshments will be served, and attendance is open to
all students and the public. A 250-300 word abstract will be due by
midnight on Friday, March 15. All abstracts should be emailed as a .doc or
.docx file to
