CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR “MICRO-BURKES” MINI-CONFERENCE

The Kenneth Burke Society will host a "Micro-Burkes" Mini-Conference during a Special Interest Group meeting during the upcoming Conference on College Composition and Communication Convention on March 19, 2015 in Tampa, Florida. We invite proposals for 4-minute presentations, which identify uncharted or otherwise innovative areas of Kenneth Burke scholarship and interest. We especially encourage submissions from MA/PhD students, doctoral candidates, post-docs, lecturers, and assistant professors. Multidisciplinary and creative projects are welcome.

These 4-minute presentations will receive focused feedback from fellow attendees and will be listed on a mini-conference program, which will appear in the "Happenings" section of the KB Journal website (but will not appear on the CCCC program). Additionally, presenters will be encouraged to submit revised mini-projects for consideration in the online KB Journal (which has no minimum word-count requirement for submissions).

Time and Place: Thursday, March 19 at 6:30 PM, Marriott Grand Ballroom J (Level Two), Tampa Florida Marriott Waterside Hotel. All presenters and attendees must register for the CCCC Convention (instructions located here: https://secure.ncte.org/store/register.aspx).

Submission Guidelines: Email submissions to Ethan.Sproat at uvu.edu no later than Monday, December 1, 2014. In your submission email, include your name, current institution affiliation, preferred email address, a proposed title for your presentation or project, and a 250-word abstract (i.e. about the size of this CFP). Abstracts will be blindly reviewed by a small handful of KBS members. Everyone who emails a proposal by the deadline will be notified regarding acceptance by January 15, 2015.
