The editors of Parlour are currently seeking two forms of video content: lectures and presentations. Lectures should be approximately 20 minutes in length and aim to teach Parlour’s audience about a literary topic. Lectures can be part of a series—please submit a proposal first if you would like to do a 3 (or more) part lecture series. Lectures should not be videos of your classroom sessions, but rather an oration given specifically for Parlour and its audience. Lectures may include you speaking directly to a camera, pictures, video clips, voice-over, etc. All materials used must either be your own property, in the public domain, or used with permission and citation.

Presentations should be between 10-15 minutes in length and aim to be informative. Presentations are not a video of you reading a paper into a camera. Rather, we would like to see you talking to your audience in a more or less relaxed format. As with the lectures, you may use a myriad of media to create your presentation.

For sake of continuity between all videos hosted by Parlour, please open your lecture or presentation by saying: “I’m (your name) for Parlour. When ending your video, please close by saying: “On behalf of myself and Parlour, thank you for watching. For more videos and content got to www.ohio.edu/parlour.”
