International Studies Association-Northeast Annual Conference
2-3 November 2012
Tremont Plaza Hotel, Baltimore, MD, USA
Submission deadline: 29 June 2012
The annual conference of the International Studies Association-Northeast (ISA-NE) will be held 2-3 November 2012 at the Tremont Plaza Hotel & Grand Historic Venue in Baltimore, Maryland. ISA-NE invites paper and panel proposals on any subject related to international studies, broadly defined. Topics might include international relations theory, international law and organizations, foreign policy, globalization, human rights, international development, conflict resolution, military/strategic studies, the environment, feminist theory/gender studies, and international political economy, among others. ISA-NE expressly welcomes research from the full range of approaches to and philosophies of IR, including those using critical and postmodernist lenses.
We also encourage paper, panel, and roundtable proposals on subjects related to this year’s conference theme, Global Governance and Interdisciplinarity in IR. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the relationship between global governance and disciplinary IR, interdisciplinary approaches to and studies of IR and global governance, and the relationship between political science and other disciplines in the study of international politics. We especially encourage proposals from varied disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives. We seek to showcase the work of advanced graduate students and junior as well as senior scholars, and we welcome innovative ideas about the format, structure, and content of conference sessions.
Papers delivered at ISA-NE are eligible for consideration for the Fred Hartmann Award (graduate students/ABD) or the Lee Bennett Award (scholars who have completed their Ph.D. degrees). Graduate students whose papers are accepted for presentation and who do not receive support from their departments are eligible to apply for travel support from ISA-NE. Requests should be made to the ISA-NE President, Patrick Thaddeus Jackson, and should be submitted no later than September 1, 2012.
Panel, roundtable, and individual paper proposals can be submitted via the myISA login page; on the main page for the ISA-NE conference, click the “My Submissions” link to submit a proposal. Although you will need to create a myISA account if you do not already have one in order to access the system, you do not need to already be a member of the International Studies Association in order to do so.
The conference program also includes a number of events of interest. Our provisional schedule includes Nicholas Onuf as the luncheon keynote speaker, and the annual meeting of the Northeast Circle.
Deadline for paper/panel submissions is Friday, 29 June 2012. Questions about potential submissions and participation should be sent by e-mail to the Program Chair, Samuel Barkin. Scholars willing to serve as panel chairs/discussants should use the myISA system to signal their willingness and to provide information on their areas of expertise, or contact the Program Chair directly.
The preliminary program will be posted by 2 August 2012 at the MyISA conference page and on the ISA-NE website.
