News and Updates from FPA

It was an exciting - and unusually long - Governing Council meeting this year in San Francisco at our Annual Convention. One important piece of business involved the approval of three new sections which bring new and exciting substantive issue areas to our membership. Let me tell you a bit about them:

The Global Health Studies Section (GHS) aims to make the ISA the intellectual hub for all those engaged in the study of global health politics internationally. It is being led by Stefan Elbe at the University of Sussex.

The new Historical International Relations (HIST), led by Daniel Green with the University of Delaware, seeks to promote the exchange of ideas among HIST-interested scholars across both disciplinary and international boundaries.

Religion and International Relations (REL) is designed to promote the exchange of ideas and networking among scholars and students working on religion and International Relations. This new section is led by Ron Hassner at University of California, Berkeley.

I remain amazed by the growth and breadth of our sections - and by our members' diverse intellectual strengths and pursuits.

These three new sections will be accepting paper and panel submissions for the first time this year for the ISA 2014 annual convention in Toronto (note: June 1st submission deadline).

ISA members can join these sections - and any of our other 27 sections of ISA - by adding the section to their existing membership. If you're not an ISA member, please consider joining the organization to be able to connect with these great new Sections!

The International Studies Association

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.
