Oral Presentation Guidelines for ISD 2016

For 2016, the oral presentation portion of Iona Scholars Day will include four fifty-minute sessions. Either individual papers (preferably short, 6 pages – please specify the number of pages in your proposal), or panels of several papers, may be proposed.
Topics for papers should be discussed with the faculty mentors who nominate you, and ideally this paper will be one you have written for a humanities class here at Iona.
There will be time for questions at the end of each session, so students should be prepared to answer challenging and critical questions.
For an individual paper proposal, please submit the following:
  • Your name
  • The name of a faculty mentor who nominates this paper
  • The title of the paper
  • Number of pages / word count
For a panel proposal, please submit the following:
  • Names of all participants
  • The name of faculty mentor(s) who nominates these papers
  • Title of the Panel
  • The titles of all papers
  • Number of pages / word count of each paper

Further questions or concerns should be directed to Dr. Kim Paffenroth at
