Workshops allow participants to read and engage in conversation with a small group of colleagues about our current work. Groups will meet once during the conference to discuss pre-circulated works-in-progress. Composition of groups will depend on submissions; we will attempt to accommodate as many submissions as possible given space constraints. Participants commit to: submitting a work of 5-30 pages for pre-circulation at least 3 weeks prior to the SE17 meeting, reading their colleagues’ work, and attending the seminar meeting.

A separate call for workshop submissions will be issued following the formation of regular panel sessions, with a deadline of June 15. Please do not send submissions now. Those who would like to participate will submit a ~150-word abstract of their current scholarly or pedagogical project, whether article, book proposal, book chapter, website, syllabus, or other curricular innovation, to Claire Goldstein AND Juliette Cherbuliez. Note: While preference will be given to SE17 members who are not presenting on a panel, all are encouraged to submit.

Further information concerning the conference will be available starting in April on the Society’s website :

Des informations complémentaires seront disponibles dès le mois d’avril sur le site Web de la Société : http://se17.bowdoin.edu
