Narrative and Conflict Journal
Where and when?
The gathering will take place over 2 days at George Mason University, on November, 15-16, 2019. If you are interested, please contact Fatma Jabbari (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information. You can make your submission by May 15th by sending it to Fatma Jabbari.
Submissions could involve a proposal for:
A feature of the conference gathering will be the inclusion of flash-talks, as well as the usual format of papers. Unlike a full research talk given in traditional panels, a Flash Talk is an overview of a study. Presenters must draw out the most important aspects of their research in a 5-minute time-frame and then field a series of questions immediately thereafter. This is a great opportunity to present and discuss new ideas on working or completed papers and get valuable feedback from peers. A Flash Talk session will consist of up to seven research projects discussed using brief PowerPoint presentations. They require a title (limited to 50 words), an abstract (limited to 150 words), three tags, and at least one author.
Stimulating Journal Articles for a Special Issue
One of the goals of this conference is to generate new knowledge about narrative and social justice that could be captured for publication in the journal Narrative and Conflict: Explorations in Theory and Practice., which is the journal anchored by the Center for the Study of Narrative and Conflict Resolution. Presentations may be individual papers, panel discussions, roundtables, flashtalks, or iposters. The latter two categories, “flashtalks” or “iposters” provide an opportunity to share a work in progress, to provoke discussion and get feedback. Our plan is to publish one or more issues of the online journal featuring these submissions.
The iPoster is an interactive presentation that offers authors the ability to embed hyperlinks, videos, images, graphics (etc.) and allows the attendees to interact and engage directly with the presentation onsite and after the conference.
The iPosters will be featured as part of an online galleries at the conference website as well as the School of Conflict Analysis and Resolution and George Mason University at large. Submissions for iPosters requires an abstract (150words), that includes a title, research question, argument, a brief description of methods, and main findings. A template will be provided for those whose iposter proposals are accepted.
