**Please be advised that the process for submitting panels has slightly changed. All Paper authors (Paper Panels) or Panelists (Book Panels and Roundtables) must submit an individual proposal application. Panel organizers will automatically receive confirmation emails from authors/panelists, along with the codes corresponding to each author/panelist. The panel organizer will then use these codes to create a panel.
What are the differences between the types of sessions?
- Paper panels consist of 4-5 papers organized around a common theme with comments provided by a chair and a discussant.
- Book panels (also known as "Author Meets Critics") bring together 4-6 scholars to debate a recent publication in the field and are moderated by a chair.
- Roundtables assemble 4-6 scholars to discuss a common theme, idea, or topic with moderation provided by a chair.
- And mini-symposia are a thematic cluster of 2-4 sessions of any of the above types grouped together.
