CFP Ethnic Politics Workshop IV

by sur 13/07/2012

December 13-14, Call for Proposals

We invite applications to present at the fourth Ethnic Politics Workshop to be held December 13-14, 2012, at Arizona State University (ASU) in Tempe, Arizona. The Workshop aims to promote new approaches to the study of ethnic politics in the social sciences by periodically bringing together small interdisciplinary groups of social scientists to exchange ideas, brainstorm, provide constructive criticism of each others works in progress, and promote joint projects that may result from the workshop. We seek social scientists of all career stages–from post-fieldwork dissertation writers to senior scholars–whose work: (a) demonstrates substantial theoretical innovation grounded in empirical research; (b) has ethnicity or identity as a central focus; (c) has the potential to lead to generalizable and falsifiable arguments; and (d) reflects (potential for) a long-term research program rather than a one-off project.

Interested researchers should submit a CV and a one-page description of a research project idea they would like to present at the workshop, explaining how it fits into their longer-term research program. These should be sent to by October 1, 2012. Applicants will be notified of decisions within two to three weeks. Transportation and accommodation costs will be covered by the organizers. The meeting is funded by a grant from the Institute for Social Science Research, and is organized by the Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict, at Arizona State University.
