Call for Papers: Knowledge Transfer and Cultural Exchanges, CHAM International Conference


The II CHAM International Conference will be hosted by Centro de História d’Aquém e d’Além-Mar / Portuguese Centre for Global History (CHAM), an inter-University research unit of the Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and of the Universidade dos Açores, and will take place at FCSH/NOVA in Lisbon, Portugal, from 15-18 July 2015. This year’s edition will revolve around the theme Knowledge Transfer and Cultural Exchanges.
Debuted in 2013, CHAM International Conference is a result of the board’s desire to organise a major international scientific event to present and discuss the themes focused by this Centre’s research groups. In addition to gather hundreds of national and foreign experts, the conference also aims to provide access to young researchers. CHAM intends to make this event a significant biennial conference – involving over 200 participants and 20 thematic panels – that stands as a forum for discussion acknowledged worldwide and as a valuable opportunity to disclose the results of the historical research made on topics such as globalisation and interculturalism.
After closing the call for panels, with the approval of 32 panels, the II CHAM International Conference Committee invites those interested in the above theme to submit proposals for call for papers and posters. The submission of proposals will be open until 19 December, 2014.
Proposals must consist of:
– a paper/contribution/poster title
– the name/s and email address/es of author/s
– a short abstract of fewer than 300 characters
– a long abstract of fewer than 250 words
All proposals must be made via online form (not email). Go to the panel page you are interested in (or the poster session page). Click on the ‘propose a paper’ link beneath the long abstract, to make your proposal direct to that panel.
Proposals will be marked as pending until the end of the Call for papers (19/12/2014). Convenors will then be asked to make their decisions over the papers proposed to their panel by 16th January 2015 and to communicate those to the proposers, marking them up within the login environment (Cocoa). Papers which are neither accepted nor rejected, but marked for ‘transfer’, will then be considered by the Scientific Committee to see where else they might fit in the conference programme. There is no guarantee that such papers can be re-housed. We aim to resolve all transfers by 18th February 2015.
