CTW (Connecticut College, Trinity, Wesleyan) Undergraduate Symposium in the Arts & Humanities

Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut is hosting the second annual CTW Undergraduate Symposium in the Arts and Humanities on Friday, March 27th and Saturday, March 28th, 2020. This symposium will give undergraduate students from the three partner institutions, as well as other institutions in the state of Connecticut, an opportunity to present their original scholarly work in a professional setting. We invite submissions of scholarship and creative work focusing on any area in the arts and humanities, including fields such as languages and literatures, history, philosophy, music, theater and dance, art and art history, gender and queer studies, cultural studies, ethnic studies, religious studies, and film and media studies. We also encourage submissions in the areas of digital, public, and local humanities. Presentations should take the form of 10-15 minute papers, readings, short video screenings, or performances (all creative contributions must also include a brief analytical or explanatory component).

Students interested in submitting an abstract to the symposium must contact a faculty member to act as a sponsor for developing their presentation. This faculty member will provide guidance as the student works through the various stages of preparing a professional conference presentation. This faculty member will also fill out a short sponsorship form that will be distributed to all students whose abstracts are accepted.
Submissions should be submitted no later than Saturday, February 15, 2020 to: Any questions may also be directed to the same address.
