The Department of Languages, Philosophy, and communication Studies hosts a student symposium each spring. This year the symposium will be the afternoon of April 21st. The idea is to provide a forum for students to present their ideas and research to a broader audience. You might want to present an idea on your own, or with a group in the form of a panel discussion, or with a group in the form of a roundtable discussion. Each kind of presentation (solo, panel, roundtable) should be conceived as taking 20 minutes or so. If you or a group of you is interested, you should send a 200-word abstract (just a short description of what you’re doing, along with a title) to christa.jones (at) The deadline for abstracts is this Friday, March 17th.
