The International Studies Association West region is pleased to announce the call for proposals for our 2022 annual conference to take place on September 23-24, 2022 at the Westin in Pasadena, California. The deadline for submission of the proposals is June 3rd, 2022.
ISA-West invites papers, panels, 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 conference theme: Global Interconnectedness: Implications and Consequences. We are interested in projects that explore the role of countries and routine in international politics, in the academy, and our pedagogies. Scholarly, educational, policy, and professional development projects that address the implications, consequences, challenges, and opportunities in all aspects of international affairs are welcome. The full call for proposals can be accessed here: https://www.isanet.org/Conferences/West-Pasadena-2022/Call
Questions about submissions should be sent to the program chair, Dr. Janicke Stramer-Smith, Weber State University, Ogden, Utah at ISAWest2022@isanet.org.
This year we are returning to our regular conference meeting place in Pasadena CA, and the conference will be exclusively in-person. We will follow all current CDC guidelines with regards to Covid-19 and communication about particular guidelines will be sent out as necessary. We will continue offering limited travel grants for attending the conference in Pasadena, CA. Information about travel grants and paper awards will follow in a separate communication later.
2022 ISA West Emerging Scholar Forum
ISA-West will continue its Emerging Scholars Forum (ESF). Graduate students and junior faculty are encouraged to identify their preference to be considered for the ESF when submitting paper proposals for the program. The selection process is competitive. Similar to ISA's Junior Scholar Symposium, this is a valuable opportunity to receive in-depth feedback from a senior scholar at a regional conference. Please make sure to take advantage of this opportunity if you qualify by clicking the appropriate box on the paper submission page. Choosing to be considered for ESF does not exclude your paper for being included in the regular program should it not be chosen for ESF.
