Graduate Research Symposium

7th Annual Graduate Research Symposium
Sadler Center
March 16-17, 2018

The annual Graduate Research Symposium (GRS) is a unique educational and networking event, encouraging exchange between disciplines and bringing together students from William & Mary and regional universities. The focus of the Symposium is on the individual student and his or her research, though graduate students take the opportunity to discuss ongoing research in their fields.

This broadly themed conference is designed to bring together Arts & Sciences graduate students from differing areas of study and from all stages of the degree process. The congenial setting and professionally-oriented environment provide an opportunity for students to present and discuss their research, while fostering community relationships across discipline boundaries. Abstracts of no more 250 words (1,600 characters) are requested for the following categories of submission: Oral Presentations and Poster Presentations.

They are seeking abstract submissions from currently enrolled graduate students in the following discipline(s): American Studies, Anthropology, Applied Science, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, History, Physics, Psychology, and Public Policy. 

Deadline for submissions is December 8, 2017.

The Thirteenth International Conference on the Arts in Society calls for papers

The Arts in Society is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the Thirteenth International Conference on the Arts in Society, held 27–29 June 2018 at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, Canada.

Founded in 2000, the conference offers an interdisciplinary forum for discussion of the role of the arts in society. It is a place for critical engagement, examination and experimentation, developing ideas that connect the arts to their contexts in the world—on stage, in studios and theaters, in classrooms, in museums and galleries, on the streets, and in communities.

They invite proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, colloquia, innovation showcases, virtual posters, or virtual lightning talks. The conference features research addressing the annual themes and the 2018 Special Focus: “How Art Makes Things Happen—Situating Social Practice in Research, Practice, and Action.”

Grad students may apply for limited LASS funding if their paper is accepted and will be presenting it at the conference.
