ISA-Northeast 2017 Conference Workshops: Methodology & Pedagogy

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

CISS 2017 Bologna Program Update

The final version of the program is ready. Please visit the Program and Events link to the left to view the conference program. We will have a limited number of hard copies, so we strongly advise printing it yourself and/or saving a digital version. As you will see, the number of panelists in each concurrent session varies slightly. Please note that you will need to limit your presentation to between 10 and 12 minutes depending on the number of presenters in your session (the same is true for those serving as discussants). Power Point capabilities are available in each conference room. Please bring your Power Point slides on a flash drive. In addition, please make sure that you send your draft papers to your panel discussants as soon as possible and definitely not later than Tuesday, June 20th. Next week, we will send you a logistics memo that would include information about the city of Bologna and about the opening reception, which will be held on the evening of Wednesday, June 28th, right after the opening plenary session.

Registration has been reopened. To remain on the final program all must register no later than June 21. 

We look forward to seeing you all in Bologna!
