Extended Call for Projects
Deadline: February 22, 2021
The Nellie Langford Rowell Library at York University is excited to announce our First Annual Nellie Library Undergraduate Student Conference, to be held virtually on March 4 and 5, 2021. The Nellie looks forward to showcasing the amazing work being produced by our strong, committed, and creative students!
Who should apply:
If you are a third- or fourth-year undergraduate student at York University, and you have recently completed, or are currently working on, a compelling, thought-provoking project you are invited to apply to participate in our First Annual Undergraduate Student Conference. We are seeking interesting and unique projects submitted in the Fall 2020 semester or due in Winter 2021, which are engaged with feminist, anti-racist, intersectional, interdisciplinary and/or decolonizing approaches. If selected, depending on the number of applicants, you will be asked to present for 5 – 10 minutes, followed by a brief question-and-answer period. We look forward to receiving a variety of creative and thought-provoking multi-media projects. This includes, but is not limited to written papers, posters, poetic presentations, storytelling, and visual projects.
If you have a project of which you are proud, which you are eager to share with your peers and the larger York community, and which meets some or all the criteria above, we strongly encourage you to apply!
If this is the first time you have considered presenting at a conference, it could seem daunting. However, this is a wonderful opportunity for you to present your work in a supportive and encouraging environment, and to receive respectful, constructive feedback which could help you further strengthen your project. You will develop, or strengthen, your conference presentation skills as you showcase your own work, and as you support your peers as they present their projects. The confidence you gain from participating could enrich your York experience, and the skills and networks you develop will serve you as an undergraduate student and beyond, as you move to graduate studies, or into the workplace. After the conference, you will receive a Certificate of Participation.
