“Intercultural Research: Looking Back, Looking Forward.”

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

We are accepting submissions for presentations (20 minutes) followed by discussion (10 minutes) on topics related to intercultural issues. The theme for this year, “Intercultural Research: Looking Back, Looking Forward” is intentionally broadly-stated so as to provide a forum where multiple perspectives from across a spectrum of issues can be shared and discussed.

Reports on small/large-scale research projects, research proposals, preliminary results of ongoing work, or teaching workshops on intercultural topics are all welcome. While the working language of the Symposium is English, we encourage proposals that are written in French, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese. Summaries of presentations and selected peer reviewed full papers will be published in the online 2014 CILS Symposium proceedings after the symposium.

Your submission should include:

 Your name(s)

 Your affiliation(s) (e.g. UBC, Department of Asian Studies)

 Format of presentation (paper or workshop)

 A title (max. 10 words)

 Abstract of your proposed presentation (max. 250 words)

 Short description (max. 100 words) for inclusion in the program

 Keywords (up to five)

 A/V needs (all presenters will be asked to supply their own laptops). All rooms are equipped with digital projectors.

Proposals will be reviewed as they are received and authors notified as soon as possible.

This Call for Papers closes on February 28, 2013. Submit your proposal by February 28 at: cils.ubc@ubc.ca

If you have any questions, please email Natalia Balyasnikova at сils.ubc@ubc.ca
