**New in 2014: New Research Roundtable**:
To encourage scholarly exchange and collaborations, we are launching this year a new feature of the conference: “The New Research Roundtable.” Held on the Friday morning of the conference, the Roundtable will offer a forum for graduate students as well as junior and senior scholars to offer brief presentations (5 minutes) on new projects and works in progress and receive feedback both at the session in small group discussions and throughout the conference. Names, affiliations, and project titles of presenters will appear in the conference program.
Proposals to participate in the Roundtable should include: research title, a 50-75 word description, and a current c.v. to: email@example.com.
Proposals will be accepted between 19 May 2014 and 16 July 2014.
Coming to the Conference: Northfield, MN hosts two liberal arts colleges and is conveniently located within 40 minutes of the Minneapolis/St Paul airport, a major Delta Airlines hub serving domestic and international flights.
