You will be one of three to four participants in a panel or session (the terminology varies depending on the organizers) and be given fifteen to twenty minutes to present your paper.
This is often followed by a ten-minute question-and-answer session either immediately after your presentation or after all of the speakers are finished.
An important part of the work completed in academia is sharing our scholarship with others.
Such communication takes place when we present at scholarly conferences, publish in peer-reviewed journals, and publish in books.
Furthermore, you should always proofread your proposal carefully and check whether you have integrated details, such as author’s name, the correct number of words, year of publication, etc. If you are comparing and contrasting two different authors or subjects, you should clearly outline the process at which you arrive at your conclusion, even in a short proposal.
The reader needs to realize the importance and legitimacy of comparing these two themes and get a sense of cohesion.
Roundtables feature an average of five to six speakers, each of whom gets the floor for approximately five to ten minutes to speak on their respective topics and/or subtopics.
At times, papers from the speakers might be circulated in advance among the roundtable members or even prospective attendees.
Accordingly, you will receive some rejections to your submissions in the course of your career, which, in contrast to book proposals or fellowship applications, do not come with an explanation for the rejection.
There are common pitfalls that you might need to improve on for future proposals.
