Each year, the Department of Languages, Philosophy, and Communication Studies sponsors an undergraduate colloquium. The idea is to have a mini-conference at which students present papers they’ve worked on. Often, students in the same class will band together and present their papers, or their thoughts about a topic they have found interesting. Or individual students can put together posters conveying their ideas, and hang around them to explain them to interested folks. So start thinking about what you might like to present. There are awards for best papers.

The deadline to submit a 100-word proposal of what you are planning to do is April 1. Please submit to sarah.gordon (at) If you have any questions, just speak with any faculty member in the department.
