CFP: CHSG’s 2016 Annual Meeting

March 11-12, 2016, San Juan Islands

Call for papers

Please submit a 1 (full) page, single-spaced proposal that outlines the topic you propose to present. (Due to the number of proposals received, proposals shorter than one page will not be considered). E-mail your proposal by January 15 to both program organizers for the 2016 meeting, Gina Rumore and Antony Adler.

In their selection of papers, the CHSG program chairs consider a range of factors. Of course, the quality of the proposal is key. In addition, selection is based on the goal of putting together a program that includes scholars from a range of institutions and backgrounds, topics from a range of time periods and disciplines, and students or scholars who have not presented at recent CHSG meetings.

The CHSG conference at Friday Harbor is a small meeting, with a limited number of presenters (usually 9). Graduate students are reminded that they will be presenting in front of leading academic scholars, as well as their peers. While the CHSG meeting is known for its less formal tone, the academic rigor of the presentations is taken very seriously. Thus, the organizers request that presenters make every effort to prepare a professional talk. If you are a graduate student, and first time presenter, the program committee encourages you to apply, but if your paper is accepted they strongly recommend that you practice your presentation in advance with your home department or with your advisor. This will not only ensure the quality of the presentations, it will also help you get the most constructive feedback on your work.

Deadline: January 15, 2016
