The ISA’s Academic Freedom Committee (https://www.isanet.org/ISA/Governance/Committees/Academic-Freedom) is charged with documenting instances where scholars in international studies are persecuted for their peaceful, non-partisan, professional activities, particularly when engaged in activities related to scholarly research and teaching.
The Academic Freedom Committee has two panel slots at the 2020 ISA annual meeting. We would be interested in any ideas or suggestions that ISA members may have for panel or roundtable proposals, and we welcome proposals for consideration by the committee.
Proposals should include a short abstract of the topic, maximum 300 words, and a list of panelist and paper titles or roundtable participants. The proposals should be submitted to Academic Freedom Committee chair Kristian Skrede Gleditsch (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 15 May.
Please note that since the final panels will have to be submitted by 1 June we will only be able to consider proposals that are either complete
or can realistically be completed by the deadline.
The committee will notify submitters if we would like to submit a proposal from the committee by 18 May for a final submission of 1 June. Other proposals can still be submitted independently to the annual meeting, using the regular procedure, by the 1 June deadline.
