"In Other Words" Roundtables

Call for Proposals: "In Other Words" Roundtables

In keeping with one of the main conclusions of the ISA-Global South Caucus Dialogue, the “In Other Words” Roundtables were launched at the 2018 San Francisco convention. Given the success of this pilot project, whose main goal is to achieve greater linguistic inclusiveness in reflection of the diversity of the ISA, we are happy to announce the call for submissions for Las Vegas 2021. The deadline for "In Other Words" submissions is June 1, 2020.

The theme for next year’s ISA convention, “Globalization, Regionalism and Nationalism: Contending Forces in World Politics”, offers an interesting opportunity to consider how collaborative approaches to global problems can be achieved without sacrificing linguistic diversity, and what the most effective avenues may be available for communicating and sharing knowledge across regional and linguistic divides.

We welcome proposals for roundtables conducted in Spanish, French, Arabic or Mandarin that address these issues. Proposals should be submitted in both English and the chosen language, and should include: title, abstract, three tags, and the names, email addresses and institutional affiliations of participations (which should include a chair and between 6 and 7 panelists). Although the roundtables themselves will be conducted in one of the four targeted languages, the audience will be free to ask questions or comment in English.
