Time to Submit Proposals to the ISA FTGS Programme in Honolulu!

You may have seen that the call for proposals is now live and the deadline for submissions is June 1, so now is the time to start planning papers, roundtables and panel. Details can be found here: https://www.isanet.org/Conferences/Honolulu-2020/Call).

The theme for this year is "Multiple Identities and Scholarship in a Global IR: One Profession, Many Voices" and the ISA is actively encouraging papers, panels and roundtables that address the following questions:

  • What do we know about international relations as a result of women’s increased visibility in ISA? How can ISA further the visibility and voice of women in international relations?
  • What do we know about international relations as a result of the growing participation of Global South scholars in ISA? What measures can ISA take to further engage scholars from and in the Global South?
  • What do we know about international relations as a result of LGBTQ scholars’ visibility in ISA? What measures can ISA take to further engage scholars who are LGBTQ? What do we know about international relations as a result of the growth of ethnic and racial diversity within ISA?
  • How can ISA address issues related to ethnic and racial diversity in international relations in a concrete and practical way?‚Äč

It would be great to have some FTGS panels that specifically address the conference theme. The ISA is also accepting some specialty proposals for a limited number of innovative panels, non-English language roundtables and career courses (see here: https://www.isanet.org/Conferences/Honolulu-2020/Submissions/Specialty). The deadlines for these submissions are much sooner (innovative panels are due 15 May).

At the planning meeting, the ISA Program Chairs promised to intervene if faced with any all-male panels, but they have also asked participants to actively think about the geographical diversity of our panels. So please consider this when curating your panels. I will also be looking to co-sponsor panels with other sections to maximize our presence.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact him at t.gregory[at]auckland.ac.nz.
