Streamlines is a collaborative effort among three academic institutions in Dubuque, Iowa – Clarke University, Loras College and the University of Dubuque – to create unique opportunities for undergraduates to share scholarship and creativity.
This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Barbara Lounsberry, a recently retired Professor of English at the University of Northern Iowa who has written books on literature and writing. She has also edited three mystery novels set in Iowa, in addition to being named UNI’s Distinguished Scholar in 1994 and Outstanding Teacher in 1998.
To be considered, visit clarke.edu/streamlines to submit a 300-word abstract of your paper or a 1.5-2 page detailed outline of your panel presentation in addition to your complete project. Papers should not be longer than 7 pages and there is a maximum of three submissions per person. Panel submissions are also encouraged. Participants will be notified of selection by Sunday, October 16, 2016.
The conference will take place at the University of Dubuque in Dubuque, Iowa on Saturday, November 5. This is an excellent opportunity to share your work so we hope to see some WKU English representation at this year’s conference!
