IAHR 2015 Extension (note from CSSR President, Ruby Ramji)

 In News | Nouvelles, Uncategorized

Dear CSSR Members and Friends,

As the CSSR is a member association of the International Association for the History of Religion (IAHR), I hope you find this information useful to you academically, and that you plan to submit a proposal for their upcoming meeting.

Good news regarding the IAHR World Congress in Erfurt, Germany – August 23-29, 2015: they have extended the deadline for panel proposal submissions to December 15, 2014. This is the same deadline for paper and poster proposals. This is a final deadline and no extensions will be provided after this date. Proposals sent after December 15, 2014 will not be included in the program. Submitters will receive notice of their proposal before March 1, 2015. If your panel, paper or poster has been accepted by the Academic Program Committee, please note that you will have to register as Congress participant before May 15, 2015 to be included in the Congress program.

The World Congress Organizing Committee has agreed upon important changes to rules and regulations in regard to proposals and acceptance of panels, papers, and chairs.

The adjusted rules and regulations now state:

A network of scholars, a group of scholars, one scholar, a member association and the like may propose and organize up to three panels on a given topic. If there is demand for more than three panels, the proposer must approach the Academic Program Committee via the organizers to argue for further panels. The panels must be given different subtitles to indicate nuances and variations of the overall theme.

One scholar may chair up to two panels, and present up to two papers in two different panels. A third presentation may be granted in special cases. Please contact the Academic Program Committee via the organizers in these cases. A scholar chairing two panels may act as co-chair to other panels. However, we urge proposers to encourage colleagues and especially younger scholars to act as chairs and co-chairs at the Congress.

Registration for the 2015 Erfurt World Congress opened on September 1, 2014. You will find all the information you need regarding registration, fees, accommodation, call for papers, financial assistance etc. at the Congress website at http://www.iahr2015.org

Attached is the IAHR e-Bulletin Supplement, September 2014. This Supplement includes important information to all IAHR members and affiliates and IAHR member associations. If you have problems opening the attached PDF, you can use this link: www.iahr.dk/bulletins/IAHR_e-Bull_Suppl_Sept_2014.pdf
