CfP: Judith Reppy Institute Interdisciplinary Graduate Workshop on Peace and Conflict

The 2015-16 Graduate Fellows of Cornell University’s Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies are pleased to announce their graduate student workshop on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Peace and Conflict to be held on Cornell’s campus on Saturday, April 16th, 2016. In selecting this theme, the Fellows hope to elicit submissions from graduate students whose work seeks to answer questions pertaining to global peace and conflict using innovative methods, novel theoretical applications, and creative interdisciplinary approaches.

This workshop invites submission of abstracts from graduate students from fields including, but not limited to, political science, sociology, history, science and technology studies, and anthropology. Topics should be related to the Reppy Institute’s commitment to historical and contemporary topics in international conflict and security, arms control and disarmament, international law and organization, technological change and instances of collective violence.

Submissions should include a 300 to 500 word abstract outlining the topic, theoretical framework, methodology, and a brief statement highlighting the interdisciplinary nature of the work. Please include both your institutional and departmental affiliation in your proposal. Workshop organizers will arrange panels based on themes and topics that emerge from the abstracts. Each presenter will be offered a moderate stipend for reimbursement of travel and accommodation expenses.

Please submit abstracts to reppyfellows@gmail.com by January 25th, 2016. Scholars whose submissions are accepted will be notified by mid-February. Please direct all further inquiries to Michael Allen at reppyfellows@gmail.com
