The KCC READS Annual Student Conference
Bringing Together Students, Faculty, Staff & Invited Guests
Along with a series of smaller events throughout the year—film screenings, lectures by our faculty or invited guests, teaching workshops, panel discussions, student led roundtables, debates and discussion fora—we host an annual conference where students working on the book, as well as members of the faculty, staff and invited guests, present their work: in panel and roundtable formats; with papers, posters and power point presentations; dramatic and poetry performances; and art and science exhibitions showcasing work in multiple genres. Students also participate in the planning and management of this event. And, each year, the author or an expert in the field is invited to give the Keynote Lecture at the conference. For details of last year's program, click here.
The KCC Reads Student Conference enhances students’ academic experience at Kingsborough by providing an opportunity to present a paper or project on the annual book—this year that book is Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The program enables students who read the book in a class to share with our community the work they produced in response to it.
Complete the submission form for work you would like to present at the conference. And, Students: Don't worry if it is still a draft or not fully complete -- submit what you have now, you can finalize it before the date of the conference.
