Call for Papers: Cornell University Graduate Student Conference on Peace and Conflict
Date: March 24, 2018

Subject Fields: Diplomacy and International Relations, Political Science, History of Science, Medicine, and Technology, Sociology, Social History / Studies

Cornell University’s 2017-2018 Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies Graduate Fellows are pleased to announce the third annual Reppy Institute graduate student conference, to be held on Saturday, March 24, 2018. We hope to elicit submissions from graduate students whose work seeks to answer questions pertaining to global peace and conflict using innovative methods, novel theoretical applications, and creative interdisciplinary approaches.

This conference invites submission of abstracts from graduate students from fields including, but not limited to, government, sociology, history, science and technology studies, anthropology, philosophy, law, and communications. Topics should be related to the Reppy Institute’s interest in the problems of war and peace, arms control and disarmament, and instances of collective violence.

Questions that we expect to be useful for developing abstracts for this conference are, for example:

How do law, technology, peace, and conflict intersect, both conceptually and in historical or contemporary contexts?

How have national/international legal structures been used to mediate conflicts and define peace?

How have technologies been deployed in peace/conflict scenarios? How do specific technological artifacts or systems embody the politics of peace or conflict?

Applications should be submitted via https://reppygraduateconference.wordpress.com/how-to-submit/. The deadline for submissions is December 22, 2017. Submissions should include a 300 to 500 word abstract explaining the topic, theoretical framework, methodology, implications of the scholarship, and a brief statement highlighting the interdisciplinary nature of the work. Scholars whose submissions are accepted will be notified by mid-January.

Participants will be offered a modest stipend of $500 to defray their expenses for travel, room and board.
