Deadline: June 1, 2020
This panel series asks us to reimagine the academy and ISA as an inclusive terrain. How can we and how should we develop institutions and structured relationships that target racism, misogyny, ableism, geographic bias, homo- and transphobia? Who does the work of decolonizing our knowledge development and production? What forms should decision-making and academic culture take to eliminate barriers and increase the diversity of voices with authority?
The series aims to challenge systemic exclusion through the articulation of new practices, approaches, cultures, and institutional parameters that liberate ISA in particular, and scholarship in general. Drawing from expertise across research, governance, teaching, and decision-making, we seek proposals for full panels and roundtables that highlight the work that is being done to increase the visibility and authority of scholars from diverse experiences and positions, disentangling scholarship from static modes of thought and behaviors that are closed and privileged.
We encourage both proposals that offer practical reforms and institutional mechanisms to advance inclusivity in ISA or at our home institutions, and those that provide support, encouragement, and strategies for coping with differential treatment in professional and academic settings.
Some themes might include:
We very much welcome resubmissions of panels that were not able to go ahead at the 2020 convention in Hawai’i.
All proposals should include title, abstract (brief outline of the contents of the panel/roundtable), and participant list (including affiliation/home institution and email address for each participant).
Please (re)submit your proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, 25 May 2020.
Contact StructuringInclusion@isanet.org with submissions and/or questions about this program.
