Writopia’s Winter 2018 Youth Essay Conference: A Celebration of Ideas Across Disciplines was hosted by the Center for Experimental Humanities at New York University. The event was held at NYU’s Silver Center for the Arts and Sciences on February, 4th from 1:00pm-4:00pm

At this conference, the next generation of thinkers, writers, and leaders shared the ideas and research that they are most passionate about with a panel of their peers and the community at large. The themes covered formed organically from a pool of critical essays we have received from writers ages 12-18 from all over the New York Tri-State area, that highlighted the concerns and commentary of the next generation.

Panels included:
The Feminist Critical Lens
America Revisited
Psychology and Ethics
Race and Media
Technology and Society

Submissions and conference for Fall 2018 TBA
