Wondering how to top off your undergraduate experience with one last hoorah? Maybe you should look into SAMLA.

SAMLA is an Undergraduate Research Forum, a track of programming dedicated to hosting panels comprised of undergraduate presentations, at SAMLA 89. Undergraduates will present traditional papers in the standard format with the added benefit of an informed response from a senior SAMLA member serving as session respondent. TheyΒ Β hosted ten concurrent undergraduate sessions at last year’s conference in Jacksonville, and want to expand theirΒ undergraduate track to include even more sessions at this year’s conference in Atlanta.

SAMLA 89 will be held November 3–5, 2017 at the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta. This year’s conference theme is High Art/Low Art: Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture. Participants are encouraged, but not required, to address the conference theme.

All 2017 undergraduates will be eligible to participate in the Undergraduate Research Forum in November.

The deadline to submit is September 8th.Β

Undergraduates participating at SAMLA 89 will have their membership fee waived and will have their registration fee reduced to $40. Registered undergraduates are allowed – and encouraged! – to participate in all conference activities.
