ISA-West Pasadena 2019: Call for Proposals

The International Studies Association West region is pleased to announce our 2019 annual conference, September 27-28, in Pasadena, California, USA. ISA-West invites paper, panel and roundtable proposals on any subject related to international studies, broadly defined.

We strongly encourage paper, panel and roundtable proposals on subjects related to this year’s continuing conference theme: Breaking Down Barriers, Dismantling Walls.

In recent years, increased connectivity and globalization have seemingly reversed. Across both the developed and developing world, we have observed a spike in nationalism and anti-immigrant rhetoric. In our classrooms and on our campuses, we have observed heightened tensions and divisions as well as opportunities to bridge the divides and offer refuge during confusing and turbulent times. Thus, as international relations scholars, we are tasked with posing questions and fostering climates that help us better understand a divided and contentious world.

As such, our conference theme is Breaking Down Barriers, Dismantling Walls. We are interested in projects that explore the role that barriers and borders play in international politics, in the academy, and in our pedagogies as well as projects that explore breaking them down. In keeping with this theme, research that breaks down disciplinary barriers and walls is also welcomed. Furthermore, topical research on migration and forced migration, internationalized conflict, and transnational social movements and activism are welcomed.

ISA-West continues to have limited travel grants available to ISA members only. To apply for a Travel Grant, please submit a short outline of your current funding sources, your university affiliation, the location you will be traveling from along with your proposed abstract and paper title to Maria Ortuoste, Travel Chair at maria.ortuoste@csueastbay.edu. Preference will be given to members of the ISA-West region. Travel Award Application Deadline: June 21st.

Questions about submissions should be sent to the program chair, Dr. Thorin Wright, Arizona State University, at ISAWest2019@isanet.org
