Call for Applications: Emerging Latin American and Caribbean Scholar Forum

Taking place before the 2022 International Studies Association Annual Convention, A Wider Discipline For A Smaller World

Nashville, Tennessee, USA
Tuesday, March 29th, 2022

The Emerging Latin American and Caribbean Scholar Forum is a collaborative training and networking program designed for emerging (Ph.D. students and post-docs) and early career (junior faculty) scholars from the LAC region. Established LAC scholars (and senior scholars residing outside the region but whose work is directly related to Latin America and the Caribbean) will act as facilitators throughout a one-day forum, to be held the day before the 2022 ISA annual convention in Nashville, on March 29, 2022.

Description of the Forum

The forum will be divided into two main parts: (1) an initial plenary session devoted to issues such as academic (and other) careers, publishing and networking within the field of IR, both regionally and globally; and (2) break-out sessions that will place small groups of emerging and early career LAC scholars with a senior International Relations scholar. The junior scholars and their senior scholar facilitator will be grouped together according to their paper topics, which will focus on themes such as IR theory, foreign policy, security and international political economy. The junior scholars will make brief presentations of their work, followed by feedback from the other participants, including the senior facilitator.

ISA LAC will publish relevant insights from junior and senior scholar attendees on its social networks about their participation in the forum. Participants will also be encouraged to polish and submit the papers presented at the forum to appropriate publication venues.

Participation

Interested participants apply for the forum, and the LAC Region Executive Committee evaluates these applications and identifies a maximum of 15-20 emerging scholars to take part. To be eligible, all participants must be ISA members and registered for the 2022 ISA annual convention in Nashville. Applications should be submitted by December 10, 2021. All applicants will receive notification as to whether they have been accepted to the forum by January 20, 2022 at the latest. Very limited funding is available to subsidize participants’ travel expenses.

If you are interested in participating, please send the following information to the LAC Region president, Cintia Quiliconi (cvquiliconi@flacso.edu.ec):

  2. Ph.D. institution and date of graduation (or expected date if in progress)

  5. ISA travel grant for Nashville 2022 (yes/no)
