The International Studies Association-Midwest invites proposals for papers, panels, and roundtables on any subjects related to international studies, broadly defined, for its annual meeting. The conference will be held on November 22nd-23rd at the Hilton at the Ballpark, St. Louis, Missouri, USA. The deadline for paper and panel submissions for the ISA-Midwest conference is Friday, July 12th.
All proposal submissions must be made through the ISA submission software. ISA membership is not required for either proposal submission or conference attendance, though you will need to create an account with isanet.org if you do not already have one. Faculty members attending the conference may be asked to serve as chairs and/or discussants. Please make sure to indicate your areas of expertise when submitting your proposal.
This year’s conference will feature a talk by and a roundtable in honor of the 2019 Quincy Wright Distinguished Scholar, Jeffrey Pickering. Dr. Pickering is Professor of Political Science at Kansas State University, and is also the editor-in-chief of the ISA’s International Interactions journal. We will also host Cameron Thies, the President of the ISA, who will give a talk in the evening of Friday, November 22nd.
ISA-Midwest is home to many editors or associate editors of the ISA journals, senior and junior faculty, graduate and undergraduate students. In addition to receiving helpful feedback on research panels, the conference allows many opportunities (editors’ roundtable, panels on professional issues and skills) to interact with colleagues across the region and beyond.
