Thesis Deadline Reminder! Monday, 8/18

If you’re planning to graduate this September (summer 2014 graduation), you must have your hard copy thesis and signed paperwork handed in to the Draper offices by Monday, August 18 at 5pm.  See the link for any thesis-related questions, or email us at draper.program@nyu.edu.

We’ll assign your second reader — either Robin or Robert, depending on your subject matter. A few weeks after the thesis deadline, we’ll email to let you know your thesis has been officially approved by Draper. It will take another three weeks, approximately, for the registrar to process your graduation paperwork; when they do, you’ll see the degree conferred on your online transcript. Eight weeks after that, the registrar sends out diplomas, so please make sure your mailing address is correct in Albert.

Finally, we’ll be celebrating our summer and fall graduates together at a party in January, 2015. That date is TBD, but we’ll announce it on the listserve (and blog and social media), so please stay tuned!

Deadline Extended CFP: The Crisis of the Book (Due 6/1)

The Crisis of the Book: Worlds of Opportunity, Worlds of Change
October 18–20, 2012
The Governor Hotel
Portland, Oregon

Hosted by the Reed College Master of Arts in Liberal Studies Program
Call for papers deadline is extended to June 1, 2011. Download guidelines
From scroll to codex, printing press to computer screen, revolutions in technology have changed the way we receive and process information, and even the way we think about ideas. This interdisciplinary conference will place the transformation in print culture in a historical framework, and will reflect upon the changing nature of text delivery and the experience of reading.
How is knowledge produced? What role does the book play as cultural, material, and sacred object? What is the place of the modern library in the electronic age? How does the field of new media studies reflect evolving social contexts? How do we “see” graphic novels or navigate through hypertext fiction? What questions concerning copyright and intellectual property does the digital age raise?
Reading is at the heart of what we do in the academy, both personally and professionally. What is the future of your practice of reading? Please join us for a lively discussion of how knowledge is produced and disseminated.

We are now accepting proposals for presentations — deadline is extended to June 1. Download guidelines

The conference will run from Thursday evening, October 18, 2012 through Saturday noon, October 20. The pre-conference workshop will be held Thursday, October 18.  Conference banquet will be held Friday evening, October 19. We strongly advise reserving your hotel room early to secure the desired room/rate at The Governor Hotel, a small, historic hotel with limited rooms in each price category.
