Description of the event and list of past presenters.

What is the Mini-Criti?

The academic writing process can be a long, lonely process and the "Mini-Criti" is meant to make the experience better. Everyone can use help with content and presentation style and this event is meant to help students in the program gain experience in confident presentation of their work. It is a friendly forum for students within the Humanities program to present their work in front of others before presenting the same work at a conference or submitting it for publication. If you would like to participate speak to one of the members of AHA.
