The final deadline for proposals is 30 September 2015.  Abstracts and queries should be sent to eahn2016conference @ gmail.com

Sessions will consist of either five papers or of four papers and a respondent with time for questions and dialogue at the end. Each paper should take no more than 20 minutes to present. Abstracts for session presentations should define the subject and summarize the argument to be made in the presented paper. The content of that paper should be the product of well-documented original research that is primarily analytical and interpretive rather than descriptive.

Roundtables will have no more than six participants plus chairs and an extended time for dialogue, debate and discussion among participants and their public. Each discussant will have 10 minutes to present a position. Abstracts for round tables should summarize the position to be taken.

Papers may not have been previously published, nor presented in public. Only one submission per author will be accepted. Applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision by 31 October 2015.

Please note: to chair or present at the conference, one must be a member of EAHN.
