The International Studies Association-Northeast invites proposals for papers, panels, and roundtables on any subjects related to international studies, broadly defined, for its annual meeting. The conference will be held November 3rd - 4th at the Hilton Providence, Providence, Rhode Island, USA. The deadline for paper and panel submissions for the ISA-Northeast conference is Monday, June 26th.

All proposal submissions must be through the ISA submission software. ISA membership is not required for either proposal submission or conference attendance, though you will need to create an account with isanet.org if you do not already have one. Faculty members attending the conference will be asked to serve as chair/discussants. Please indicate your areas of expertise when you submit your proposal.

In addition to our general call for papers, ISA-NE will be sponsoring both a Methodology Workshop and a Pedagogy Workshop during the annual conference. Deadlines to apply for each are approaching quickly. Check out each program for additional information and application details.

Methodology

The ISA Northeast’s thirteenth annual workshop brings together faculty and graduate students, focusing on research approaches that differ in various ways from statistical and comparative methodologies: interpretive methodologies, which highlight the grounding of analysis in actors’ lived experiences and thus produce knowledge phenomenologically, hermeneutically, and narratively; holistic case studies and forms of process-tracing that do not reduce to the measurement of intervening variables; and relational methodologies, which concentrate on how social networks and intersubjective discursive processes concatenate to generate outcomes. Applications are now being accepted from interested graduate students. More information may be found here: http://www.isanet.org/Conferences/Northeast-Providence-2017/Call/Methodology-Workshop

Pedagogy

While ISA conferences appropriately celebrate scholarship, most of us earn our living teaching undergraduate students. The ISA NE pedagogy workshop is an opportunity for early-career IR academics to work with experienced mentors on preparing for the teaching side of the profession. Participants hear about specific pedagogical strategies, work with a mentor and a small cohort of colleagues to envision how those techniques might change their courses, and develop vocabulary for explaining their pedagogy to students, colleagues and hiring/review committees. Applications now being accepted – more details available here: http://www.isanet.org/Conferences/Northeast-Providence-2017/Call/Pedagogy-Workshop

The International Studies Association

Representing over 100 countries, ISA has more than 6,500 members worldwide and is the most respected and widely known scholarly association in this field. Endeavoring to create communities of scholars dedicated to international studies, ISA is divided into 6 geographic subdivisions of ISA (Regions), 29 thematic groups (Sections) and 4 Caucuses which provide opportunities to exchange ideas and research with local colleagues and within specific subject areas.
