Call for proposals: Understanding Foreign Policy-Making Within Area Studies

Queen Mary University of London, Tuesday 17 December 2019, 12-6pm
Convenor: Dr Marianna Charountaki (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
Deadline: 31 October 2019
The goal of this workshop is to identify common ground between the fields of FPA and Area Studies. Colleagues are invited to propose contributions focused on ontological, epistemological, and methodological issues, and to think about how the insights from one might be relevant to the other. Contributions need not be in the form of a full paper, since this is a preliminary discussion which will build to some extent on conversations that took place at the BISA annual conference in June. It could, for example, include reflections on ongoing or recently completed research projects that drew on insights from both sub-fields.
The goal is to identify what scholars working in separate but related sub-fields might be able to learn from each other’s insights, knowledge, and approaches. There is some funding available for travel bursaries for BISA members wishing to attend this workshop, with preference given to PhD students and early career researchers without access to institutional travel funds.
Dr Charountaki is especially keen to hear from female colleagues and people of colour, and from colleagues working on a range of different regions of the world, so please do put yourself forward if you think you have something to say. If you are interested in participating, or would like more information, please email Dr Charountaki on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
