With presentations by Professor Carol Faulkner, Professor Chris Kyle, Professor Martin Shanguhyia, and graduate students Sravani Biswas and Matthew Stewart.
The Future Professoriate Program presented this in-depth look at academic conferences as the second Fall Workshop. From finding and applying to conferences, to following up with new connections afterward, and knowing what conference funding employers might provide, this session was specifically designed to benefit first year students as well as advanced students on the job market. Three faculty members – Professor Carol Faulkner, Professor Chris Kyle, Professor Martin Shanguhyia – and two of our advanced graduate students gave insight into their experiences organizing and attending conferences. Graduate students at all stages of their respective programs attended and brought questions for the panelists.
