Into the Darkness: 1st Annual Pan-European Studies Graduate Conference at the University of Virginia
April 1-3, 2016
Graduate students from the departments of German, Slavic Languages, Spanish, Italian & Portuguese, French, History, and Music at the University of Virginia have come together to organize the first Pan-European Studies Graduate Conference with a truly interdisciplinary exploration of the topic "Darkness" in European Studies. This inaugural Pan-European Studies conference will launch a forum for the exchange of ideas and the professional development of graduate students.
The conference will allow graduate students to practice the art of writing, presenting, and defending conference papers. However, the conference will be opened up to the wider graduate student community in the form of a “Dissertation Speed-Dating” workshop. Graduate students at the university will be invited to attend our workshop at which they will have the chance to practice their “elevator speech” and present it to a fellow student outside of their discipline.
