Housh Talks

Housh Talks is the annual paper competition for current PhD students. Students will give a 5-6 minute presentation on a topic of their research with 4 minutes for question and answers. The presentations are judged by members of the faculty at Southern and the students of the program.

The student with the highest scored presentation will receive a travel stipend to the national ETS or SBL conference in the following semester.

Current students may submit a proposal for the contest (due: Sept. 27th). Only a number of proposals will be chosen for the contest.

Students who are presenting will be notified by October 4th.
