Call for Section Proposals
Indeed, ECPG 2021 will not work with predefined Sections but will work instead with an open call for Section proposals.
In line with the Conference’s aims, Sections can cover a full range of topics across the field of gender and politics broadly conceived to include any gender, sexuality and intersectionality perspectives in political science, international relations, political theory and philosophy, research methods, public policy and public administration, social movements and many more. The Conference is keen to engage as well with research on race and intersectionality, on sexuality, on men and the masculine and those who identify as non-binary, genderqueer or intersex.
A section can accommodate 3-8 panels on a specific topic. Section chairs can signal their estimated optimal number of panels to allow for a balance between sections. However, the final number of panels allocated will depend on the number of paper proposals for the section.
Section proposals should include a title and abstract of no more than 750 words summarizing the key objectives and themes, and ideally including ideas for some panel and paper topics. Section proposals can include a number of predefined panels (maximum 50% of all requested panels) but should also ensure the opportunity for non-predefined panel and paper proposals to be submitted in a later stage. Please note: proposing predefined panels is not a precondition and does not influence the selection chances!
We are also very much open to new and innovative ways, others than the usual panel format, of organizing (some of) the sections.
University of Ljubljana, 7-9 July 2021.
Deadline for Section proposals: 2 September 2020
