Welcome to Our 2024 Conference:

Southern Plains Arts, Humanities, and Languages Conference

Presented by OSU’s English Graduate Students


April 19-20, 2024

Wes Watkins Center, Stillwater


After a successful first conference in April 2023, we're once again looking forward to our Southern Plains Arts, Humanities, and Languages Conference, presented by the graduate students of Oklahoma State University's English Department. The conference will be held on Friday, April 19 and Saturday, April 20, 2024 in the Wes Watkins Center and welcomes both academic and creative work from institutions across the region.

We invite panelists and presenters (i.e. papers, creative works, etc.) from both OSU and surrounding regional universities from disciplines not limited to: Creative Writing, English, Linguistics, Literature, Rhetoric and Writing Studies, Screen Studies, TESOL/Applied Linguistics, and other interdisciplinary programs. 

About the Conference:

We will be kicking off the conference on Friday afternoon with an official welcome, opening remarks, a special plenary speaker, and refreshments. Saturday will include academic panels and presentations throughout the day with refreshments and lunch provided. We will end Saturday off with awards to graduate students and recognition of all donors. Specific times for each day will be announced at a later date. 

With Your Donation:

Any amount will go towards our conference's budget and will be used towards space rental, catering services, marketing, plenary and other speaker costs, and registration materials. This year's conference will be our biggest one yet, and we plan on expanding it to the entire region and beyond, welcoming all colleges and universities in the Southern Plains and surrounding area. 

Thank you for supporting the graduate students of OSU's English Department!
