CfP: 22nd Annual UCLA Graduate Student Colloquium in Armenian Studies

Deadline: 1:59pm (PST) on September 10, 2024

The UCLA Graduate Student Colloquium in Armenian Studies Committee invites current graduate students and recent graduates (MA or PhD within the last two years) to present their research at the 22nd Annual Graduate Student Colloquium in Armenian Studies on February 21, 2025. Research papers will be accepted on all aspects of Armenian studies, including but not limited to language, literature, history, gender studies, sociology, anthropology, economics, and art history. Papers that make use of comparative themes and interdisciplinary approaches are particularly encouraged.

Applicants are asked to submit an abstract of no more than 250 words and a brief curriculum vitae by 11:59pm (PST) on September 10, 2024. To submit your proposal, please click here.

Abstracts should be written in a manner accessible to a broad academic audience (i.e. limit the use of discipline-specific jargon) and should provide a clear, focused description of the topic as well as the paper’s theoretical perspectives. Each abstract will be given a blind review by the committee and will be evaluated based on the originality of the topic and the clarity of the exposition with regard to argument, methodology, and expression. Priority of acceptance will be given to those who have not presented at the colloquium in previous years. Please note that a 20-minute time limit will be strictly enforced for each paper (roughly 7-8 pages, double-spaced). Accepted speakers will be required to submit a draft of their presentation by January 15, 2025.
