CfP: NINE DTP Doing IPS Residential Workshop – 20th – 22nd April, 2020 – Newcastle University
What defines disciplinary boundaries in the social sciences? What makes one piece of research political science and another sociology? How do we see particular issues as international and others as national? How might we theorise the limits of the political and beyond?
International Political Sociology (IPS) unites these concerns and thinks about how we might engage in research that crosses boundaries, bringing into conversation diverse approaches to questions about the international and the everyday. Its top-ranking journal publishes innovative work from a wide range of subject areas such as politics, IR, geography, anthropology, sociology, law and history that explores how we might theorise wide-ranging issues such as migration, security, popular culture, technology, finance, tourism, and more. This workshop offers postgraduate students interested in these questions the unmissable opportunity to participate in a fully-funded 3-day event with leading members of the journal’s editorial team and the IPS community, who will provide feedback on their work as well as introduce them to cutting-edge developments in the field. We hope to encourage an ongoing and participatory conversation with the aim of establishing a critical, cross-disciplinary network among NINE DTP universities.
As well as receiving feedback on their work from a leading member of the IPS community, successful applicants have the opportunity to attend publication roundtables and seminars on the theme of IPS. There will also be academic roundtables which bring students into ongoing conversations happening in the journal and beyond. We invite any NINE DTP students interested in this invaluable opportunity to submit a 250-word abstract, an 80-word biography, and a brief description of what format the work will be e.g. thesis chapter, journal article, research/thesis plan, literature review. We encourage participation from students from all stages.
The deadline for submissions is the 10th of January 2020. If you have any questions and/or are interested in the workshop but unsure about how your research aligns with IPS then please do not hesitate to get in touch. We will be happy to discuss any queries.
