Virtual Interdisciplinary Faculty Conference

Adapting to a New Normal

The School of Arts and Letters

2nd Annual Virtual Interdisciplinary Faculty Conference

Friday, March 11, 2022

In the past two years, many things have changed and challenged us as educators. Last year, we created this virtual conference as an opportunity for faculty to present scholarly work that that they could not present at conferences due to the pandemic or for faculty who just wanted feedback on projects in-progress. The conference was a huge success, and we think it is necessary to offer this platform again. For this conference, as with last year, 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 workAdaptability_is_Key-.pnging 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 you’ve adapted to our new normal.

The conference is open to all disciplines and all forms of scholarship are welcome.

*For SOAL faculty, 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.
