Call for Papers
CHEIRON invites submissions of papers, thematic symposia, panels, roundtables, workshops and posters that deal with an aspect of the history of the human, behavioral or social sciences or related historiographical and methodological issues.
Submissions must be received by February 26th, 2024, 5 pm EST.
Notification of acceptance will be sent by the end of March 2024.
Attendance at the conference will be required for the presentation of papers. However, we will “stream” sessions using a virtual format so that “Virtual attendees,” as members of the audience, will be able to engage in discussions during sessions.
All submissions should conform to the guidelines listed below:
Please use the following online form to submit your proposal/abstract: https://forms.gle/FcbMZ7TkZckVqdDt9
All papers and proposed sessions (thematic symposia/panels, roundtables) should focus on new and original work. The main part of the work should not have been published or presented previously at other conferences.
Using the online form, please indicate the submission type paper presentation, proposed session (thematic symposia, panels, roundtables), workshop, or poster.
To facilitate a “blind” peer review, authors must not include their name anywhere on the proposal/abstract. Information concerning author(s)’s name and affiliation; author(s)’s preferred email address; audio/visual needs; and accessibility requests will be submitted using the online form.
Authors should submit a 500-600 word abstract plus a short bibliography that includes the major sources that inform the work. Presentations should be approximately 20 minutes in length so that ten minutes will be available for a discussion of the paper.
Thematic Symposium or Panel:
The organizer should submit a 250-300-word description and rationale of the event, along with a short bibliography and list of the names and affiliations of the participants. Each participant should submit a 500-600 word abstract plus a short bibliography that includes the major sources that inform their work.
