The British International Studies Association (BISA) Postgraduate Network is pleased to announce a call for papers its 2014 Annual Conference, to be held in Dublin on the 17th June. The theme is of the conference is ‘conflict’, in all of its manifestations across international political studies. As such, ‘conflict’ could relate to environmental, gender, health, legal or development politics, amongst many other issues and theoretical interpretations of conflict.
There are FIFTEEN bursaries for attendance available to postgraduate students, but these students must also present at BISA’s Annual Conference over the following three days, also held in Dublin. As such, funding is dependent on being accepted for the BISA Conference (‘A Crisis of Global Governance’) as well as the postgraduate one. As our funding for the 15 bursaries and the stipulation to present at both conferences is from BISA, they are very supportive of accepting postgraduate papers and look forward to reading your submissions.
If you wish to be considered for a bursary, you must have submitted a proposal to the BISA Conference AND the BISA Postgraduate Conference by the 29th November. Once these papers have been accepted, the deadline for applying for a bursary is Monday the 10th March, 2014 (http://www.bisa.ac.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=80&Itemid=201).
Additionally, the PGN is currently liaising with the BISA Working Groups with a view to possibly including themed panels and conference paper prizes in order to create closer relations between postgraduates and the Working Groups.
Abstracts should be no longer than 200 words and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, please contact Neil James Wilson at email@example.com.
Successful abstracts will be announced in January 2014.”
