*CALL FOR PRESENTERS*
FPP Annual Conference
May 16-17, 2019
The FPP Annual Conference will again be held in the bucolic surroundings of the White Eagle Conference Center in Hamilton, NY, the week following Commencement. The conference will feature a full slate of FPP-themed programming and opportunities to engage with faculty from SU and diverse institutions around the CNY region. Along with its relaxed and collegial atmosphere, the conference is notable for being free: registration, room, food, and round-trip bus transportation from campus are all covered by the Graduate School.
The Graduate School is now accepting proposals for sessions consistent with the conference’s focus on teaching, job search preparation, and other aspects of academic professionalization. Research talks are appropriate only if the content relates to one of these areas. Sessions will last one hour and may follow any standard format—e.g., panel, workshop, solo presentation. Proposals are encouraged from both graduate students and faculty.
To propose a session, please provide a title and brief (50-75 word) description, identifying any co-presenters and/or technological requirements, by email to Glenn Wright (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, March 29.
Registration information will be coming shortly, but needless to say, presenters are guaranteed a space at the conference. See below for conference programs and videos from previous years.
