2018 Call for Team Members

The 2018 Concordia English Graduate Colloquium is presently seeking team members to vet and edit papers for presentation and for publication in our second annual volume of conference proceedings, as well as to help manage the event space during the conference on March 23 and 24, 2018.

This position provides the opportunity to gain valuable experience vetting and editing academic papers on a variety of subjects relating to this year’s conference theme: Animal Print. Vetters and editors will hone their critical and analytic skills in order to select and polish papers for presentation and publication, working in collaboration with the team, organizers, and the authors themselves. Joining the team is a great way to get involved in English department activities and to network with Canadian graduate students and scholars.

The only plenary colloquium meeting will be the vetting meeting on the afternoon of Friday, December 8, 2017, where we will discuss which papers to select for the conference. The reading will take place the week prior, starting December 1, 2017. Please ensure that you will be available to attend that meeting and will be able to read through all submissions in early December.

To apply, please submit a brief paragraph of intent stating why you would be a good fit for the team and detailing which tasks interest you to by Sunday, October 1, 2017 at 11:59 pm.

Priority is awarded to applications from graduate students in Concordia’s Department of English. In order to ensure that the process of selecting papers for the Colloquium remains impartial, we commit to a blind vetting process. Individuals also interested in submitting papers are therefore welcome and encouraged to apply to the Colloquium team.
