Call for Panels

ICES20 welcomes specialised academic panels to be organised by small groups of researchers active in Ethiopian Studies worldwide. The conference will consist of general thematic panels, offered by the conference organisers, and specialised panels offered by colleagues based on their approval by the academic committee of the ICES20. The organising committee will evaluate the submissions and decide upon its approval, rejection or suggestions for changes based on academic criteria and questions of organisation.

Panels should be oriented towards the leading theme of the conference "Regional and Global Ethiopia - Interconnections and Identities". This can include research projects on local and regional clusters of culture and their interconnections with other clusters; it can focus on connections over wide regions in space and time, or on local social, cultural or historical phenomena, or any other topics based on new research on and in the region, its languages, societies, history/histories and cultures.

Please refer to the second circular letter for the panel submission guideline.

Please submit your panel suggestion through the form below. Submission deadline is 31 May 2017. You can also submit the panel through conference organiser's email address: ices20additional
