Submission Option 1

Research paper (15 min paper presentation): We invite proposals for single paper presentations on the conference theme – teaching in a humanities classroom. The goal of these papers is to share knowledge and to encourage critical dialogue among conference participants. Paper proposals should be submitted by the first author and will last a maximum of 15 minutes each, including at least 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Papers will be grouped into sessions of two or three. The abstract part of the proposal text should be between 300 and 400 words.

Submission Option 2

Panel Proposal (1 hour 15min session): Panel discussions are particularly appropriate for topics that benefit from multiple perspectives and presenters, including disciplinary, institutional, and national perspectives. The goal for panel discussions is to provide panelists and audience members the opportunity to exchange insights, engage in discussion, and learn from each other’s experiences. Panel proposals should be submitted by the panel organizer and should feature two to four panelists, and last 60 minutes, with at least 15 minutes for discussion with the audience.

The abstract part of the proposal text should be between 500 and 1,000 words, describing the panel as a whole (may also include descriptions of individual contributions and titles within the panel).

Submission Option 3

Welcome to my classroom (1 hour session): “Welcome to my classroom” is an interactive session that simulates a teaching experience. Presenters give a sample interactive class suitable for first-year students or a general audience. The 60 minute sessions would consist of two components: a presentation of a teaching moment, innovation or style, and a discussion of the pedagogy behind the presentation. The second part is intended as a forum for the audience to ask questions and relate the enacted elements to their own teaching experiences.
