ISA-West Pasadena 2017: Call for Proposals

Call for Proposals

The deadline for paper/panel submissions is Monday, June 19, 2017.

The International Studies Association West region is pleased to announce our 2017 annual conference, September 22nd – 23rd, in Pasadena, California, USA. ISA-West invites paper, panel and roundtable proposals on any subject related to international studies, broadly defined. ISA-West continues to have paper awards and limited travel grants available to ISA members only. Questions about submissions should be sent to the program chair, Cameron Thies at Arizona State University.

Ole Holsti Distinguished Scholar Award

In addition, ISA-West will award the Ole Holsti Distinguished 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. J. Ann Tickner.

2017 ISA West Emerging Scholar Forum

ISA-West will continue its Emerging Scholars Forum (ESF). 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.

This forum, to be held on the morning of the first day of the ISA-West conference, will place four small groups of three to four emerging scholars with a senior person in the field. The junior scholars and their senior scholar mentors will be grouped together with similar papers into four panels, oriented around themes such as international security, international political economy, international ethics, and international relations theory. The final composition of the panels will reflect the actual proposals received. The selection process is competitive and limited to sixteen senior graduate students and junior faculty.

Each member of the panels will have read the relevant papers for their group prior to the panel. The junior scholars will make brief presentations of their work, which will be followed by comments from the senior discussant, a broader discussion of their work, its relationship to the relevant subfield, and lead the group in subsequent discussions. Non-participant observers are welcome to attend.

As an incentive to arrive early and participate, senior scholars will receive a full night at the conference hotel, and junior scholars will receive a half a night (but may cover one or more full nights by sharing rooms). Once the emerging scholars are selected, ISA West will make a contact list available to facilitate finding roommates. To be eligible, all participants must be ISA members and registered for the 2017 ISA-West conference.

Travel Grants

Travel grant awards will consist of a small amount of money, which may be applied to the hotel, airfare or registration. Receipts are required for reimbursement. To apply, please submit a short outline of your current funding sources and indicate your university and the current location you will be traveling from. Please include your proposed abstract and paper title in the application. Applications should be sent to Dr. Veronica Ward at veronica.ward@usu.edu.

Travel Grant Deadline: June 19, 2017
