I am pleased to invite you to the 3rd Anglo-American Undergraduate Conference, which promotes scholarly papers of young researchers on Anglo-American literature, broadly defined. Since 2011, the event has been aiming at providing opportunities for intellectual exchange among students of literature and the related areas, in a friendly, interactive environment. The scope of study is as wide as the geographical diversity of the attendants. The conference welcomes students from all European countries, all countries in the world, as well as all cities in Turkey. This annual meeting is the venue for various discussion topics from different and at the same time sister disciplines such as, history, art history, religion, history of science, musicology, and literary and cultural studies in English.
The 3rd conference is on “Madness in Literature and Arts,” which gets the highest vote from the attendants of the last conference. Doubtless, the most challenging and interesting papers will be presented at this conference, again. Bilkent University Library with its rich research facilities is at your service. We look forward to listening to your presentations in April, 2013.
I wish you a productive stay at Bilkent, full of fruitful discussions, enthusiastic sessions and enjoyable social activities.
Heartfelt thanks to ELIT and AMER students, who act as wonderful organizers and hosts every year, with unending efforts in making the conference unforgettable.
