2019 conference delegate (c) Panel 8 Photography
We are delighted to announce our plans for our 2021 Annual International Conference which will take place from Tuesday 31 August to Friday 3 September 2021. The conference will be online with, we hope, in-person elements where possible – these will be decided by early April.
Chaired by Professor Uma Kothari of the University of Manchester, the theme is Borders, borderlands and bordering.
We are keen to take this opportunity to make the conference more inclusive and more sustainable, building on our initiatives over the last few years, and the online format will offer new ways for delegates to participate.
We encourage all those who submitted proposals for the postponed 2020 conference to rework and resubmit these for 2021. We also welcome new submissions. Full details, including new guidance for participation and revised limits on contributions, are included in our call for sessions, papers, and posters. The online portal for submissions will open early in the new year. The deadline for all submissions is 12 March 2021.
