The deadline for AAR Annual Meeting paper proposals is extended to March 8
From the American Academy of Religion:
PAPERS System is Open for Submissions. Due to unexpected technical challenges, some AAR members were unable to submit their proposals. Because of these issues, we are extending the deadline by one week, to Tuesday, March 8, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
What You Need to Know:
- The Annual Meeting will have an in-person only format this year. There will not be a virtual component for the 2022 meeting. For future years, we are exploring the possibility of offering a separate, virtual meeting in addition to the in-person Annual Meeting.
- Annual Meeting proposal submission is restricted to current AAR members only. You will need to renew your membership in order to log into the PAPERS site. If you are in the field of Religious Studies or Theology and are not able to afford AAR membership dues, you can apply for a grant that will be rapidly processed so that you can submit a proposal.
- Exceptions will be made for scholars outside of the field of Religious Studies and Theology on a case-by-case basis. Requests must be submitted through the AAR Membership Waiver for Proposal Submission form.
- The deadline for submitting proposals is Tuesday, March 8, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
Here’s the call from a program unit I’m directly involved with, Traditions of Eastern Late Antiquity:
Call for Proposals
For the 2022 annual conference, Traditions of Eastern Late Antiquity is organizing two sessions.
- One will be an open session for which papers on any topic germane to the subject area of the Program Unit may be proposed. We particularly encourage papers from graduate students, new AAR members, and minoritized scholars.
- The other is a session on “New Directions in the Interdisciplinary Late Antique East.” We invite graduate students to submit proposals to share work from their dissertations exploring topics relating to the late antique east from an interdisciplinary perspective. The goal is for this panel to be generative, and offer fruitful and constructive conversation.
