CFP International Symposium on Autoethnography and Narrative (ISAN)
January 1-4, 2021
Dolphin Beach Resort, St. Pete Beach, Florida, USA
The Dolphin Beach Resort has hosted four conferences since 1990 foregrounding autoethnographic and narrative scholarship. In 2021, the Resort will be our host location for a fifth conference, the International Symposium on Autoethnography and Narrative (ISAN).
ISAN seeks to provide scholars and practitioners of all experience levels an opportunity to present their autoethnographic and narrative projects and to participate in dialogue and sociability with scholars across a variety of disciplines. We invite proposals for papers, performances, and panels to be considered for presentation at the 2021 Symposium. Creative and innovative approaches to autoethnography are encouraged. Proposals might:.
• use autoethnography and/or narrative inquiry to engage social, political, cultural, and personal issues;
• address theoretical or methodological aspects of autoethnography;
• interrogate or advance autoethnographic and narrative practices.
Proposals must take the form of an extended abstract (500-750 words).
Submission of a proposal constitutes a commitment to attend the conference, if selected. Due to space and time limitations, participants are limited to no more than two proposals. The deadline to submit an abstract is June 1, 2020.
ISAN’s registration fee structure* is as follows:
- $70 fee (USD) for full-time professionals, researchers, faculty, and retired faculty
- $30 fee (USD) for students, part-time faculty, and guests/non-presenters
* If an attendee is experiencing financial hardship and is unable to pay the registration fee, we will have a limited number of opportunities to assist with the conference in exchange for a waived fee. To be considered for a fee waiver, contact Tony Adams (
) by September 1, 2020.
Registration fees must be paid by September 1, 2020 in order for presentations to be scheduled in the Symposium program. There is no refund of registration fees after December 1, 2020.
The conference will begin on the afternoon of January 1. The primary conference days will be January 2 and January 3, 2021.
