European Workshops in International Studies (EWIS)

Call for Workshop Proposals

3rd European Workshops in International Studies (EWIS)

The European International Studies Association (EISA) invites proposals for workshops as part of EWIS 2016 to take place at the University of Tübingen, Germany, 6-8 April2016. EWIS can take up to 20 workshops with a maximum of 20 participants each.

At this stage, we are looking for potential workshop convenors who would like to organize a workshop on a specific theme within the broad field of International Studies. The proposals should include:

  • the title of the workshop
  • a description of the topic and its relevance of not more than 500 words
  • an indication of topics for papers and possible participants
  • a short CV (max. 1 page)

There can be up to two convenors of each workshop. Workshop convenors must be present EISA members. They will have to pay a reduce participants fee of 30 Euros (as opposed to 100 Euros standard / 50Euros student rate), and they will be invited to the workshop convenors' dinner. They will however have to make and pay for their travel and hotel arrangements.

The deadline for proposals is 12 June 2015, with notifications by 3 July 2015. Applicants should note that this will be followed by an open call for papers with a deadline of 2 October 2015, and that workshop convenors will be asked to actively participate in the selection of workshop participants who will be notified by 16 October 2016. We will convene a meeting of prospective workshop convenors at the EISA Pan-European Conference in Sicily for further coordination, and it would be helpful if one of the seledted workshop convenors attended that conference.

Please send your proposal as a PDF attachment to thomas.diez@uni-tuebingen.de by 12 June 2015.
