Scholarship Session Types

Session TypeSession TimeOverview
Research-In-Process20 minutes of a 60 minute sessionResearch-in-process sessions take the best parts of communal roundtable discussions, paper discussant feedback, and add the opportunity to develop a paper at almost ANY STAGE OF READINESS. Papers that are fully drafted (as in past years) should be submitted in this session type as well.

Each scholar(s) will be paired with an experienced, published scholar-mentor such as an ACPA Emerging or Senior Scholar with an additional goal of supporting the author to reach publication.
Multimodal20 minutes of a 60 minute sessionScholarship presentations in this area include performance, visual, digital, and other arts-based forms of knowledge creation and distribution. Multimodal presentations can include forms such as Zines, storytelling, poetry, documentary, photo-voice project, artifact presentation, or the presentation of research findings in another creative format.

Multimodal sessions exist in two formats: (a) 20 minutes long presentation where two multimodal presentations are assigned to one session block (60 minute session in total); (b) poster-style.
