As school comes back in session for most, there are a handful of calls for papers that I wanted to draw your attention to.
A conference on Theory and Practice: The Limits of Ethics for Guiding Action will be hosted at the University of Toronto in March. While the conference is centered on ethics, philosophy, and justice, proposals are welcome in any disciplines. Submissions are due on January 18th.
Cornell Law School’s Inter-University Graduate Conference [pdf] is accepting submissions, which will be due January 18th.
American University’s Washington College of Law has a student writing competition on International Humanitarian Law. All law students are eligilble, and the deadline in January 31st.
The Sudan Studies Association will be convening its annual meeting in May in Philadelphia, and they are accepting submissions for papers, panels, roundtables, and thematic conversations. The theme for the conference is Greater Sudan: Cross Roads to the Future. Submissions are due on March 1st.
The Yale Journal of International Affairs (where I am an assistant editor) has issued a call for papers for its spring/summer issue. The journal aims to bridge academia and policy on a variety of topics, and will be accepting submissions for short articles and op-eds. Deadline is March 1st.
UPDATE: A commenter has alerted me that The Fletcher Forum of World Affairs is taking submissions for the print journal from scholars, practitioners, and PhD candidates until Feb 15. They also accept submissions for their website.
As usual, if you know of any conferences or journals that are looking for submissions, let me know!
