The International Society for Iranian Studies (ISIS)
TENTH BIENNIAL IRANIAN STUDIES CONFERENCE
Montreal, Québec, Canada, Hilton Bonaventure Hotel, Wednesday August 6, 2014-Sunday August 10, 2014
CALL FOR PAPERS
The organizers of the 10th Biennial Conference of the International Society for Iranian Studies (ISIS) invite proposals for pre-arranged panels and individual presentations in all subfields of Iranian studies. The primary language of the conference is English, but papers in Persian will be considered as well. All proposals must be submitted electronically.
Information about the 2014 conference can be found online at http://iranianstudies.com/conferences/2014
Independent PAPER PROPOSALS should include a bio of the presenter (a paragraph of no more than 200 words), and an abstract of the paper limited to a paragraph of no more than 400 words, outlining the central theme and main argument of the presentation.
Convenors of PRE-ORGANIZED PANELS should submit a personal bio and a panel proposal outlining the central theme of the panel, and indicating how the individual presentations mentioned in the order in which they are to appear, relate to that theme. The format and word count of the panel abstract are as those for independent paper proposals. Panel members must submit personally their own bios and abstracts, which follow the format of the independent paper proposal, but include also the title of the panel, which the panel convenor should convey to the presenters. Ordinarily panels comprise four presentations, but panels with three presenters will also be considered. In the latter case, the organizers may suggest to the panel convenor a fourth member, whose independent proposal is congruent with the topic of the panel.
THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION IS MAY 31, 2013, 11.59 PM
Applicants for the 10th ISIS Conference must be current members of ISIS, and must preregister for the conference. ISIS membership can be obtained by accessing the ISIS website Membership page http://iranianstudies.com/membership
ADJUDICATION: Pre-arranged panels and independent paper proposals undergo a peer-review process by a Program Committee of scholars, whose names and academic affiliations will be published on the ISIS website after the closing of the submissions process. All applicants will be notified of the status of their proposals in the fall of 2013, so that the approved candidates will have sufficient time to arrange funding through their institutions, or to apply for Canadian entry visas (where applicable).
