The UC Berkeley Comparative Literature Undergraduate Research Symposium 2016 committee is currently accepting proposals for its 5th annual conference.

The conference will take place on April 2nd, 2016 on the UC Berkeley campus and will serve as a forum for undergraduate students of comparative literature and related fields to present and discuss their own research among peers, graduate students, professors, and the Berkeley community. Attending and presenting at the conference is an excellent way to learn about current trends in literary research and to meet current undergraduates, graduate students, and professors in Comparative Literature, especially if you are considering pursuing further research and study in Comparative Literature at Berkeley.

In order to be considered, applicants must submit an abstract (200-400 words) detailing their research by March 4, 2016 at midnight Pacific Time.  Please click here to submit your abstract.

Please find attached to this email information regarding this year’s theme and guidelines for presentations.
