Second bi-annual conference of the European Network for Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies (EAM)
9-11 September 2010, Adam Mickiewicz University, PoznaŮ, Poland
Call for Submissions (Deadline extended!)
Please note that the procedure of application differs from the one applied for the 1st Biannual EAMís conference in Ghent, May 2008.
EAM invites all interested to participate in the 2nd EAM Conference Poznan 2010 by either chairing a session or presenting a paper at one of sessions. The process of application is two-stage: 1. Call for session proposals and 2. Call for papers
1. CALL FOR SESSION PROPOSALS
Due June 28, 2009 (EXTENDED TO July 31, 2009)
EAM invites session proposals that present work which aims at revising the relation between high and low culture in the European avant-garde and modernism. For the extended description of the conference theme look at: www.eam2010.amu.edu.pl. Sessions may bring together scholars in a wide range of fields such as art history and theory, literary history and theory, film studies, media studies, architecture. However, proposals in other fields will also be considered. Interdisciplinary proposals are particularly welcome.
Prospective chairs must include the following in their proposal:
1. The sessionís title and a 500-word abstract of the session
2. The chairís name, institutional affiliation, position or title and contact information.
3. The chairís CV (one page).
In case of a co-chaired session proposal, please, include information on both chairs.
Sessions are 2-hour long and typically include three to five speakers (the exact number of speakers is to be decided by the chair of each session). We discourage sessions composed of more than two participants from the same institution.
Where session proposals overlap, EAM reserves the right to select the most insightful version or, in some cases, to suggest a fusion of two or more versions from among the proposals submitted.
The session chairs will be notified by the end of August 2009. The accepted proposals will be available on the conferenceís website and circulated from August 31, 2009. Since then the chairs are responsible for organising their sessions. They will receive proposals for papers, make a selection and notify applicants. Their job is also to send full information on the session to EAM: list of participants (names, affiliation, contact), titles of papers, description of the session with abstracts of papers (about 500 words). This should be sent to EAM by April 4, 2010. During the conference the chairsí duty is to moderate their sessions. There is no honorarium but the chairs do not pay conference fees.
Session proposals should be sent by June 28, 2009 (deadline extended to: July 31, 2009) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
