Call for Panels#ASAResponsibility
The additional Call for Panels has now ended and the selection by the Local Committee will be made by 27 November. The Calls for Labs and Papers will open on 4 December.
The Call for Panels process
The call is now closed.
Before you propose a paper, lab or film please read the theme of the conference, view the accepted panels and then the rules below before making a proposal. It makes little sense to propose a panel which more or less overlaps/covers an already accepted panel: please look for the gaps within what has already been accepted.
The Call will close at 23:59 GMT on 16 November. Please read the conference theme and the Call for Panels instructions and rules (here, below) first and then propose your panels via the link provided under the instructions.
Proposals must consist of:
- a panel title
- the name/s and email address/es of panel convenor/s
- a short abstract of fewer than 300 characters
- a long abstract of fewer than 250 words
All proposals must be made via the online form, not by email.
All panels must have at least two convenors and they may be postgraduate students. The proposal may also include the names of any chairs or discussants, although these can be added subsequently using the login environment. If these roles are to be taken by convenors, there is no need to enter your own names there, as it is implicit that this will be the case where other names are not listed.
Co-convenors, chairs and discussants addeded will receive automated notifications of the panel proposal and asked to confirm their involvement. The convenor proposing the panel will also receive a notification email.
If you do not see this email, please first check the login environment Cocoa (click login under the horizontal navigation bar) to see if your proposal is there. If it is, it simply means your confirmation email got spammed/lost; and if it is not, it means you need to re-submit.
You are allowed to convene no more than (1) one panel OR lab and present only (1) one paper during the conference (you can be a non-presenting co-author to several). This does not prevent you from making multiple proposals, but in the case of multiple acceptances we will ask you to make a choice. Note that convenors can also present papers - either in their own panel or another.
The ASA requires all accepted panels to be open to paper proposals through the website; you may of course propose a panel with specific contributors in mind, but when the call for papers opens, you should be open to the possibility of other contributions arriving via the open call. Panels convenors and paper presenters need not be members of the association. However, the ASA welcomes new members (see membership page). Members of the association and of WCAA sister-associations can register for the conference at a discounted fee.
Following the interest in laboratories at previous ASA conferences, we will provide spaces for producing and presenting ethnographic works that depart from the convention of the text-based presentation. The additional Call for Labs will open on the 4 December. Please note that as the conference will take place online, all labs must be suitable for the virtual format.
Proposals will be marked as pending until Scientific Committee decisions are publicised on 27 November. On that date proposals will be marked as accepted/rejected and the conference administrators will inform you of the decision.
The Call for Papers and Labs will open on 4 December and end at 23:59 GMT on 28 December.
