Organizers: The Department of English is thrilled to announce its 25th annual Southwest English Symposium (SWES)

 

The Department of English is thrilled to announce its 25th annual Southwest English Symposium (SWES), rebranded this year as the Southwest Humanities Symposium, will be held at Arizona State University Tempe campus on Feb 20-22, 2020. This year’s theme is “Experience: Identity, Society, and Culture.”

The Southwest Humanities Symposium’s goal is to gather graduate and advanced undergraduate students from various disciplines to share their ongoing work, contribute to the humanities field, and stay up to date with the latest issues in humanities research. We encourage proposals from a diverse range of disciplines and (sub)fields that discuss current theoretical and applied issues in the humanities. Research papers, posters, panels, and creative presentations that touch on and explore any of these concepts are welcome. Possible topics might include, but are not limited to:

- Race, Ethnicity, and Identity
- Sex, Gender, and Identity
- Language Use, Variation, and Change
- Language Ideologies and Attitudes
- Languages and Cultures in Contact
- Documentation of Cultures
- Narratives of War, Poverty, and PTSD
- Narratives of Identity and Belonging
- Immigration and Adaptation
- Policies and Discrimination
- Computer-Mediated Communications
