Society for the Humanities Annual Conference: CORRUPTION
Friday, October 27 - Saturday, October 28, 2017


This year’s day-long work workshop inverts the conventional conference format. Instead of coming with polished papers, participants will provide short, thesis-driven presentations (10-15 minutes) to generate discussion around significant questions , examples, problems (30 minutes). Consciously designed as a discussion-driven seminar format, the workshop will take place in A.D. White House room 110.
