Abstracts should be between 250 and 350 words. Panels should include abstracts for all individual presentations.
Important notice on the structure of the Call For Papers for this year
As previously we are including a general CFP alongside specific streams (see the Streams on the right). Papers and pre-constituted panels are welcome in both cases. When submitting to a specific stream you should also give notice of your submission to their organizers (via email, as noted in the CFPs below). The One-Day themed conference will take place during the main event.
In ALL cases papers must be submitted to the main website http://conference.historicalmaterialism.org clearly making evident in your proposal if your paper belongs to a specific stream and/or panel.
Second important announcement: all participants are expected to make every reasonable effort to participate in the whole of the conference and be able to have their paper at any slot therein. Any absolutely imperative reasons why you cannot speak on day X or Y or at time X or Y MUST BE COMMUNICATED TO US WHEN THE ABSTRACT IS SUBMITTED as we WILL NOT be making last minute changes to the timetable as in previous years. Participants are also expected to be actually able to participate in the conference when they submit their abstracts. Of course, medical emergencies or visa denials cannot be predicted, but all other cases of last minute withdrawals cause us unnecessary stress and create chaotic conditions for a final timetable.
