ASN 2021 General Guidelines

Applying to the Convention: Key Points

  • Only ONE paper proposal by applicant will be considered, whether as an individual paper proposal or as part of a panel proposal. If your name appears on more than one paper proposal, your applications will not be considered.  

  • Since the length of the panel will be shorter than usual (90 minutes), an individual paper proposal can only include the name of ONE author. If the paper was co-written, this will be acknowledged in the online program, but only the author whose name appears on the proposal will present. Panel proposals can only include single-authored papers.  

  • Proposals for panels, roundtables or book panels do NOT include a Chair. Exceptionally, the Convention Program Committee will select all the Chairs.  

  • Applicants can be on a maximum of TWO proposals (and only on ONE paper proposal). For example, you can submit an individual paper proposal and be discussant on a panel proposal, or participant in a roundtable or a book panel. If your name appears on more than TWO proposals, your applications will not be considered. This rule does not apply to a Documentary Film Proposal.  

  • Book panel proposals will be considered for monographs published in 2019, 2020 or early 2021. Co-authored book panel proposals will be considered. Edited volumes will not be considered.  

  • Documentary film proposals will be considered for films produced in 2019, 2020 or 2021.  

  • An international Program Committee is entrusted with the selection of proposals. Applicants will be notified by January 2021.
