Call for Papers & Panels

The Call for Proposals deadline has been extended to 17 February 2023. Submit an abstract for a paper or a paneler proposal here.

The Clashing Vulnerabilities Conference invites abstracts for papers and panels. Abstracts should be no longer than 200 words. If possible, title the paper or panel with a concise description of the relevant clash: “Tigers vs. People”, “Trans activism vs. Feminism”, “Economic Development vs. Elderly Lives During a Pandemic” are examples of ideal titles.

Sessions will be two hours long, with four 15–20 minute papers, a 5 minute discussion after each paper and a 15 minute general discussion at the end of each session.

Panel proposals should include a title for the panel, a list of presenters with their academic affiliations and four abstracts (see above).

All abstracts will be reviewed by the conference reviewer board. You will receive notice whether your abstract/panel proposal has been accepted for presentation at the conference no later than February 28, 2023.
