Call for Papers: PSA International Annual Conference 2018

Call for Papers: PSA International Annual Conference 2018

The PSA has announced details of the 2018 Annual Conference, which will take place between 26 and 28 March in Cardiff (City Hall). As always, we hope to put panels forward from our group to build on the great success of last year’s conference in Glasgow.

If you would be interested in presenting an individual paper as part of one of our group panels, please complete a Paper Proposal Form, with an abstract of not more than 250 words by Friday, 13 October. If you would like to put together a panel for the conference, please complete a Panel Proposal Form by the same date. We will be in touch within two weeks of this deadline to notify you if your paper / panel proposal has been successful.

The call is open to all members of the group. There are no panel themes, so all paper and panel proposals are welcome. Postgraduate students are encouraged to apply. Those who wish to present would be eligible to apply to the PSA Postgraduate Access Fund for financial support to attend the conference. Last year we also had a number of practitioner papers – we want to continue this trend.

We had a really successful 2017 conference, with more papers and panels than we’ve ever had before. So we look forward to hearing from you!
