If you are a student and wish to be considered for the $500 prize for best student paper, please indicate this in the subject heading “Student Prize Submission SCP Midwest 2021,” and in the email body, also including your degree program (e.g. MA or PhD) and institutional affiliation.

During the conference, we will have a virtual brown bag breakout group discussion on teaching philosophy. This is an opportunity to share strategies, materials, and ideas. Once authors of accepted papers have been notified, we will open a sign-up sheet for the teaching brown bag. In order for us to assign people to breakout groups, the sign-up sheet will ask for your institution, average class size, course levels you teach, and what about teaching you would like to discuss.
