1st Virtual Interdisciplinary Faculty Conference

 We have all adapted to changing our methods of teaching as we work through the circumstances of the pandemic. Adaptability_is_Key-.pngThe opportunity to attend conferences has been limited or cancelled all together. In an effort to offer faculty an avenue to present their scholarly endeavors, we are creating the first Virtual SOAL Interdisciplinary Faculty Conference, which will be held March 19, 2021.

This year has brought so many challenges, both within academia and society as a whole. For this conference we encourage you to consider how your discipline has been impacted during these socio-political, institutional, and education policy changes. Also, if you previously had scholarly projects that you were not able to present/perform, this is a perfect opportunity to do so. We hope to showcase the broad range of what our faculty and staff are working on. No matter what the theme or subject of the project, it is welcome. We encourage scholars to submit papers, panels, performances, film, art, and roundtable ideas that encompass both traditional projects as well as new ideas that challenge or motivate you as a result of the current pandemic.

This conference offers you an opportunity to present your work if you were accepted at a conference that was cancelled; work that has been peer reviewed and accepted at another conference and is presented at this conference will count as Tier 3 Scholarship. Please consult the SOAL Faculty Handbook. If you are working on a new project or have an idea for a new project, this conference would be a great venue to receive feedback.
