2016 World Fiction Conference Conference

Welcome to the English 328 World Fiction in English Conference Conference 05.12.16. During our final exam period, our class is holding a conference comprised of the students' seminar papers. Each paper has been targeted to an actual professional conference; hence, our "conference" conference. This assignment is intended to professionalize our students through learning how to target and present their work to specific professional audiences.
