fj20 Posted July 3, 2010 Share Posted July 3, 2010 I know that the general consensus is that academic conferences are a great way to gain experience of academia (and to strengthen your resume), but my question is: if the conference is abroad, and thus an expense of a couple thousand dollars, how can you be sure it's a worthwhile investment? To be more specific, I recently submitted an abstract to an interdisciplinary (that is, not exclusively literary) conference called "Making Sense of Suffering," run by "Inter-Disciplinary.Net"); I was invited to attend, but I'm hesitant to do so because it's in the Czech Republic. Will presenting there, and later publishing my paper in the book the conference releases, really make me a more attractive applicant to doctoral programs? Anyway, if anyone knows about this Inter-Disciplinary.Net group, I'd be grateful to get any further info on them--I've researched, but found little.
