Holiday Cookbook Fundraiser: Call for Recipes

New Voices is excited to announce that we will be organizing a holiday cookbook as one of our Fall semester fundraisers. This cookbook will contain recipes from faculty, staff, and students from our represented departments of English, Modern and Classical Languages, and Communication. To help build the contents of this holiday cookbook, we are announcing a call for recipes.

2015 New Voices Conference Theme Announcement

New Voices would like to congratulate Andrea Rogers on the selection of her proposal for the 2015 New Voices Theme submission “The Rule of Threes: Death, Humor, and Repetition.” Please see below for a full description of the theme.

“The Rule of Threes: Death, Humor, and Repetition.”

“At the intersection of death and humor is a central rule: the rule of threes. This rule stipulates that if one person dies, two more will follow. Similarly, the rules of humor suggest that something must occur three times in order to be funny.  This theme seeks to investigate the multiple intersections of humor and death and their relationships to the humanities by asking where humor and death intersect and how the concept of repetition plays a part in these relationships.”

We would like to thank everyone for their submissions for this proposal as well as your participation in the voting for this year’s theme. We received some great submissions for this call and had a great response for the voting. Thank you all for helping to make this upcoming New Voices Conference a great one!

Please check back in the coming months for updates regarding mentoring sessions and calls for papers related to this great theme. Also, be sure to sign up for our mailing list and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to stay up-to-date on the latest from New Voices.

First Official New Voices Meeting of Fall 2013

To the New Voices blog followers –

Today we had our first official New Voices meeting. We were lucky enough to snag the conference room, which was really cool and nicely air conditioned.

We got some new people interested in being involved and on the committee. But if you couldn’t make it (we only had 3 new people, but we had 30 people interested o the list), please feel free to contact us and let us know of your interest in being involved. We need to replace most of our committee next year and we are excited to show any new people the ropes.

Below are the minutes from the meeting, so you can follow along. Enjoy!

New Voices Notes 11 September 2013

The next meeting will happen on…

Tuesday October 1st @11:15AM – Location TBA

Orientation Day Meeting Notes

So we don’t usually put our meeting minutes up here on the blog. Mostly that has to do with the fact that we have no secretary. New Grad students – wanna volunteer??

It is important to note however, that we are going to have a back to school bake sale at the end of September. We need people to get involved.

Also – our first official meeting of the semester, where YOU are invited to get involved as much or as little as you would like, is coming up.

September 11th – 10AM – in the Grad Lounge – 9th floor of Langdale Hall

Please contact us at newvoices11@gmail.com if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments.
