Please submit your accomplishments!

Dear graduate students,

The time has come once again for you to share with us your accomplishments, be they conference presentations, publications, performances, fellowships or jobs.

The information will be used for statistical purposes (we have to report data to various interested parties) and for the Arts & Humanities website.

Kindly go to the page below and fill out your information – one post for each conference/publication/event/appointment/performance. We want everything you have done in the last two years (i.e. from Fall 2013). The nifty software will then compile the information for administrators and for a web page listing of your exploits so the world (your professors, employers, colleagues and future students) can see what you do and have done.

We really want this information to be as complete as possible, and we really do want to brag about you – thank you for your participation!
