Formats 

Individual Proposal:  (75 minutes)

The Conference Committee welcomes individual paper proposals, with the understanding that those accepted will be grouped together around common or overlapping themes. Presenters will have approximately 15 minutes to present or summarize their individual papers. A 250 word abstract of the paper will be peer reviewed for acceptance to the conference.

Symposium Proposal: (75 minutes)

The Conference Committee welcomes proposals for a symposium. A symposium is typically composed of a chair and discussant and three to five participants who present or summarize their papers. Each symposium is organized around a common theme. A 250 word abstract of the symposium will be peer reviewed for acceptance to the conference.

Panel Proposal: (75 minutes)

The Conference Committee welcomes proposals for a panel discussion. A panel is typically composed of three to six participants who discuss their scholarly work within the context of a dialogue or conversation on a topic or theme related to the conference. Typically, each panelist is given 10-15 minutes to discuss the topic, present theoretical ideas, and/or point to relevant research. A chair should be identified who introduces the panel and frames the issues and questions being addressed. We also encourage (but do not require) organizers of panels to include a discussant who responds to the comments of the panelists. A 250 word abstract of the panel discussion will be peer reviewed for acceptance to the conference.

Alternative Format and Special Interest Groups: (75 minutes)

Alternative proposals that do not fit into the above categories, such as workshops, performances, video and multimedia presentations, and round-table dialogues, are encouraged. We also welcome proposals for the organization of special interest groups. A 250 word abstract will be peer reviewed for acceptance to the conference.
