CfP: New Voices in Expo Research – ISIE’s 2024 Online Emerging Scholars Symposium
22 March 2024
ISIE invites abstracts for its 2024 online symposium New Voices in Expo Research Submission deadline: 13 December 2023
The 2024 symposium will bring emerging scholars and established experts together to generate new ideas about the history and legacy of international expositions. We seek to emphasize new and developing strategies for research, curation, and preservation in order to maximize outreach opportunities. We want to facilitate both scholarly and popular understandings of the significance of these global events that serve as mirrors of concurrent (both real and visionary) political, cultural, and technological conditions of the times in which they were held. Our aim is that participants will leave the symposium with both new understandings and insights into the study of expositions as well as stronger connections to the global community of scholars from a vast range of disciplines involved in the study of expositions.
In addition to paper sessions, the symposium will include a roundtable event focused on the Institute, as well as opportunities to informally socialize and network with others sharing related interests. We also invite those interested in the study of world’s fairs to become involved in the future development of ISIE.
We encourage both graduate students and early career scholars interested in presenting their research in a friendly, supportive environment to apply.
Deadline for paper proposals: 19 December 2023.
