Student Lounge Roundtable

Statement of Purpose: 

The Student Lounge Roundtable Series consists of a series of workshops dedicated to professional development and the current needs of graduate students. The series is sponsored by the Graduate Student Committee and the workshops are led by graduate students, professors, and other professionals with relevant expertise to offer.

Call for Papers: 

The Graduate Student Committee invites scholars of religion to share their hard-earned wisdom in the Student Lounge Roundtable Series. We are looking for individuals who will be responsible for leading a conversation or workshop (60-90 minutes) about a topic of practical interest to student members. A variety of formats are welcome. Possible topics may include, but are not limited to:
• Online resources and computer programs to aid research, writing, or teaching
• Managing a specific stage of graduate school (courses, exams, thesis, ABD, etc.)
• Research project design or methods (Humanities and Social Sciences)
• Balancing graduate school with other dimensions of life and identity
• Creating or managing an online presence (websites, blogging, online portfolios, etc.)
• Job market (applications, interviews, alt-ac, etc.)
• Publishing (open access vs. peer review; alternative forms of publishing, etc.)
• Teaching (activities, online, technology, controversial issues, etc.)
• Presenting research to the public
• Networking
• Mentoring relationships
• Grant writing
• CV writing
• Leadership
• Identity politics

Please send a brief proposal (~150 words) and a CV to Rupa Pillai at by March 1, 2015. Please indicate if you are willing to co-present if your topic aligns with another proposal.
