You can submit the following proposals:

B. Proposal for a Panel or a Stream of related Panels,
C. Activist Proposal, documentary films, art projects, etc.
An individual can only offer one submission whether book discussion, roundtable or similar presentation. Please DO NOT submit two proposals from one person. It is, however, allowed to submit an activist proposal in addition to any of the other forms of proposal.

A. Proposal for an individual paper:
Start by selecting the Working Group below into which your proposal would fit best, and fill in the rest of the form.
