The Department of Language and Literature at Lee University cordially invites submissions for the Annual Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Conference on Latin American and Iberian Studies on March 25, 2017. This conference will bring together undergraduate students and professors from a wide variety of disciplines.
The conference focuses primarily on the languages, literatures and cultures of Latin America and Spain, but interdisciplinary submissions will also be accepted from related areas including Service Learning, Cross-Cultural Experiences, foreign language methodology, and others.
This year, we are also inviting students from surrounding high schools to participate in the conference. These students are welcome to observe undergraduate presentations and show off their own research projects in the Upper School Language, Culture, and Literature Showcase. Please note that this showcase is a smaller, walk-through poster session that will take place during the undergraduate conference.
Please send a one-page abstract of approximately 250 words as an MS-Word document that clearly identifies the aim(s) of the paper, the rationale of the study, and finding (if applicable). Since we recognize that not all papers will be completed by March, “works in progress” will be accepted. Send the proposal/abstract via email to email@example.com by February 28, 2017. Include your name, institutional affiliation, and email address as well as a brief biography and any kind of technology needed. All presentations will have a 10-12 minute limit.
Abstracts and papers may be submitted in English, Portuguese, Spanish or French. Since one of our goals is to bring undergraduate students and faculty together, papers co-authored by undergraduate students and faculty advisors will be considered. A $10 registration fee is required if you are presenting; this fee includes the cost of breakfast and lunch.
