This paper proposal was accepted to the Australian Early Medieval Association’s conference! I only sent it in last night, so that suggests more about the eagerness of the conference conveners for any sort of paper than it does about the quality of said proposal, I think, but… let us rejoice anyway!
Next bleg: they asked if I wanted to apply for a bursary to attend the conference, and instructed me to send my CV. I have no idea what kind of wank to put in an academic CV. I’ve never given a paper before (although I will on Friday… but that’s for in-department assessment, does it count?), I’ve never published and I’ve never really done anything interesting at all.
What should one put on one’s very first academic CV?1
(In case you think I’m just blegging the internet when I should ask Wise People, I am going to try to hunt down the Bocera or Lolo to ask them this question as well.)
1. What about format? Do any of you have online academic CVs I could look at to get an idea of what kind of layout people use?
