The International Studies Association West Region is pleased to announce our 2015 annual conference, September 25th - 26th, in Pasadena, California, USA. ISA-West invites paper, panel and roundtable proposals on any subject related to international studies, broadly defined. Particularly welcome are submissions related to our 2015 conference theme, “Innovations and Challenges in Teaching and Learning in a Globalizing World Order.” Our conference continues its collaboration with ISA sections International Ethics and Active Learning in International Affairs. In addition, ISA-West will award the Ole Holsti Disinguished Scholar Award, given annually to a scholar who has significantly influenced the ISA West region through an outstanding record of research, teaching and mentorship, as well as service to the International Studies Association West region. This year's recipient is Dr. Jacek Kugler.

ISA West is also pleased to announce its call for nominations for the 2016 ISA West annual conference chair. The conference program chair will serve as the ISA West President beginning in December 2017. Nominations and self nominations are welcome. Please send nominations to Carolyn James, ISA West President.

Paper, panel and roundtable proposals are being accepted until the May 20th deadline. ISA-West continues to have paper awards and limited travel grants available to ISA members only. Any questions about the conference should be directed to the conference program chair, Lui Hebron.

This year ISA-West will continue its Emerging Scholars Forum (ESF, funding pending). Senior graduate students and junior faculty are encouraged to apply when submitting paper proposals for the program. Similar to ISA's Junior Scholar Symposium, this is a valuable opportunity to receive in-depth feedback from a senior scholar at a regional conference.


You can see and contact your panels through your ISA page  We ask that chairs contact their panel about preferred details.  ISA West does have AV this year.  Each panel, however, will need someone to volunteer to bring a laptop.  The hotel is providing the projector and screen in each breakout room.  MAC users will need to provide an adaptor. Also, please urge your panelists to have their papers to the discussant no later than two weeks in advance.

In order to access your panelists' email addresses, please go to the the "Program and Events" page. (Please note, to access your fellow panelist's email addresses, you will need to login to your ISA account.) Next, please select the "My Program" button in the upper right hand corner. You'll find the panels you are on there as well as a "details and emails" link directly under the title(s) of the panel(s) you are on.

It will be a special conference this year, as ISA West is very proud to announce the creation of the Ole R.  Holsti Distinguished Scholar Award. The Ole R. Holsti Distinguished Scholar Award was established to recognize Ole R. Holsti for his extraordinary role within the ISA West region and his contributions to the international studies community as a whole. The Ole R. Holsti Distinguished Scholar will have an exceptional record of scholarship in international studies, a distinguished record of teaching and mentorship, as well as service to the International Studies Association West region. At this year’s conference, Dr. Holsti will launch the award with the keynote speech at our Saturday luncheon. The nominations for the first recipient will take this fall with the first award presented at ISA West 2015.
