The 44th GSA Conference in Washington, D.C. (Oct. 1-4, 2020) is seeking proposals for seminars.
Seminars meet for all 3 days of the conference. They explore new avenues of academic exchange and foster discussion, debate, and networking. Seminars are led by 2-3 conveners (in special cases, even 4) and must consist of a min. of 10 and a max. of 20 participants, including the conveners themselves and auditors. Conveners must aim for diversity and include scholars from different disciplines and at different career stages, including graduate students. Seminars may: discuss an academic publication; explore a new research topic; engage pre-circulated papers; debate scholarly work; develop an anthology; or discuss a specific issue (politics, public policy, novel, film, poem, musical piece, painting, or other work of art). Conveners must structure their seminars around creative and engaging forms of intellectual exchange; lengthy individual presentations are discouraged.
