Call for Panels - Closed -

| Deadline: Wednesday, 15 January 2014

We invite visual sociologists and related scholars, including independent scholars and other visual professionals to submit proposals for panels to be part of the 2014 IVSA conference. These panels can address the conference theme directly or they may raise related questions regarding methods, theory, and content. Panel proposals should be sent electronically to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by January 15th, 2014. All proposals must provide the following information:

  • Panel title and abstract. The abstract must not exceed 300 words and should be phrased as a call for papers.
  • All abstracts must be sent as a word document (not PDF), single spaced, with a standard font. The proposal must include:
  • A short biography of the person(s) submitting and chairing the panel (up to 200 words, including affiliation and recent publications, activities.)
  • Email address where the paper proposals are to be submitted.


We also invite organizers to propose completed panels. In this case, and in addition to the above requirements, panel organizers should send the titles and abstracts of all papers and biographical details of all presenters. Sessions will typically consist of four paper presentations, with five at the most. If panel directors wish to organize overflow papers into a second panel this should be communicated to the conference organizers and negotiated in a timely manner.

Panel organizers will be notified of the decision regarding their proposals by February 5th, 2014. We will require that panel organizers and presenters register for the conference by May 15th, 2014.

On February 9th the call for papers will be issued. Proposals for individual papers will be submitted directly to panel organizers. The panel directors will inform the conference organizers of their selection no later than April 7th. They will also have the option to re-­‐ direct to the conference organizers proposals that they feel are interesting but cannot fit (for reasons of topic or space) in their panel. Paper presenters will be notified by April 30th.
