Paper Presented: “Exploring the Void of Theory Between Authorial Attribution Techniques and Literary Style”Congratulations to Aaron!
If you are unfamiliar with the Travel Grants, read on:
The Draper Program, throughout the academic year, awards five $200 grants to Draper students who are selected to present papers at academic conferences. The awards are meant to defray the cost of travel, so that students are able to present outside of the New York City metro area. Winners are randomly selected from the applicants for each period. The periods are:
September 1 – October 31
November 1 – December 31
January 1 – February 28
March 1 – April 30
May 1 – June 30
Students who will be presenting at a conference within or after each drawing period are welcome to apply. (Example: if a conference falls on November 15, a student may apply to the drawings for both Sept 1 – Oct 31 and Nov 1 – Dec 31.)
A guest post by Draperite Chris Iverson,
recipient of one of Draper’s recent travel grants
Over May 11th and 12th, 2012, I attended The University of Washington’s Graduate Student Conference 2012, Acceptance in German Literary and Visual Culture, in Seattle, Washington and presented my paper, “Rubble Films on the German and International Screens.” The experience was amazing, as it was my first time presenting at a conference, and the panels covered a broad range of time periods and genres of German and international cultural products. The range of the conference proved impressive, with the notion of “acceptance” arising in many different forms, from the acceptance of a single writer or thinker into the German canon to the notion of the perception of Germany itself from without.
