LIBERLIT POSTGRADUATE PRESENTATION CONTEST

LIBERLIT POSTGRADUATE PRESENTATION CONTEST
TO BE HELD AT THE 8th ANNUAL LIBERLIT CONFERENCE 2017:
DEMYSTIFYING WITHOUT DIMINISHING THE LITERARY TEXT

This year’s conference held at Tokyo Woman’s Christian University Conference day – February 20, Monday 2017 CALL FOR PAPERS! The Liberlit conference is an ongoing forum for literature teachers and academics based in Japan that addresses attitudes and approaches to literary texts in English, and seeks to discuss how and why literature should figure in Japan’s English curriculum. Liberlit also wishes to offer an international yet Japan-based platform for promising young scholars to showcase and present their research. Liberlit 2017 will therefore continue to feature a postgraduate parallel session in which literature students are encouraged to present 20 minute papers in English summarizing scholastic work from their masters or doctorate study. At the conclusion of the presentation contest a panel of three academic judges will award a prize to the best postgraduate literature paper. Proposals on literary research are invited from postgraduate students studying at universities in Japan. Those seeking to enter the Liberlit postgraduate presentation contest should send a title and an abstract of 150 words as well as the name of their University and student status to Noriyuki Harada and Neil Addison.
