Key Information

  • proposals for pre-formed panels must include at least four presentations (papers, readings, provocations, responses, etc.), 15 minutes-max each, plus a chair; panel organizers must submit the proposal on behalf of all panelists (500 word abstract for the panel outlining topic, format, participants’ roles; 300 word abstract for each contribution as relevant to the format; all contact information)
  • proposals for panels may also include roundtables (five or six 10 minute-max presentations plus discussion) and paper/reading/hybrid jams (seven or eight short, sharp eight minute-max presentations plus discussion); please contact ASLE Co-Presidents ASLE Presidents Christoph Irmscher and Anthony Lioi at asle2017@indiana.edu to discuss other format options (e.g., author-meets-critics)
  • to encourage institutional diversity and exchange, all pre-formed panels must include participants from more than one institution and from more than one academic level/sector
  • individual paper/reading/performance submissions are for 15 minute presentations; potential presenters will be asked to indicate whether they would also be willing to participate in a paper/reading/hybrid jam with a shorter presentation (which will increase chances of acceptance); 300 word abstracts should describe both form and content and include all contact information
  • only one proposal submission is allowed per person; participants can present only once during the conference (exceptions: pre-conference seminars/workshops and chairing a panel)
  • proposals must be submitted online; in cases in which this requirement poses a significant difficulty, please contact ASLE Co-Presidents, as above

All proposals must be be submitted by December 21, 2016. We will evaluate your proposal carefully and notify you of its final status by February 15, 2017.

We encourage undergraduate involvement in ASLE, and specifically at the organization’s biennial conferences and off-year symposia. To ensure that the experience is a positive one for the student(s) and faculty member(s), the Graduate Student Liaisons have developed this guide as a resource for faculty interested in involving their undergraduate students in ASLE: ASLE_Guide_FacultyUndergradEngagement
