How does my field fit in?

We welcome proposals from graduate students in ALL disciplines.

If you are interested in the conference, we encourage you to submit, regardless if you are sure if your presentation topic “fits” in with the theme.

This year the theme is focused on how we can make our research more accessible via communication. Communication does not always have to be understood in dyadic terms, scholars can take the time to think about the places they publish their work and if these publications are capable or reaching a broader audience. How can we make the work we are currently pursuing more accessible and easier to consume? If you have specific questions about if a topic is suitable, please reach out to the conference organizers at urigradconference@etal.uri.edu
