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.
