On November 3, 2012, Simpson College will host the second MUCH: Midwest Undergraduate Conference in the Humanities. We invite submissions focusing on any area of original research-based scholarship in the humanities, including creative work, from undergraduates from colleges and universities in the Midwest. Presentations may take the form of 10-15 minute papers, readings, displays, or lecture-recitals. We particularly welcome scholarship utilizing interdisciplinary approaches and/or engaging with questions of diversity.
Students will need to ask a faculty member from their school in their field of research to sponsor the paper. The faculty member should be willing to offer guidance as the student develops and refines the project. We would also like to extend an invitation to faculty sponsors to attend the conference and to serve as panel moderators.
The submission form and a short abstract (200 word max.) should be sent to: MUCHconference@gmail.com.
Deadline for submissions: October 1, 2012 Anticipated Registration Fee: TBA (expected $20-30)
Please refer any questions you have about the conference to J.J. Butts (firstname.lastname@example.org).
