Call for Proposals for 2017 ASEEES Annual Convention, Chicago, Nov 9-12

Publishing Date: 
Friday, January 6, 2017

49th ASEEES Annual Convention
November 9-12, 2017
Chicago Marriot Downtown Magnificent Mile

Convention Theme: Transgressions
The 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution inspires the 2017 theme, and invites us to rethink the ways in which cultural, economic, political, social, and international orders are undermined, overthrown, and recast. The theme invites consideration of transgressions broadly and comparatively. Proposals need not be related to the theme.  Proposals from all disciplines, historical periods, and geographic foci are welcome. 

For more information on the Call for Proposals see

February 15: Deadline for all convention proposal submissions & meeting requests 

Accepting submissions for:

  • Panels
  • Roundtables
  • Book Discussion Roundtables (New for 2017 – Use the Roundtable submission process)
  • Individual Papers
  • Lightning Round Presentations (New for 2017 – See the call for proposal for details) 

Please review the rules for participation

We are anticipating a large number of proposals for the 2017 Convention. Individual paper submissions will have a MUCH LOWER chance of being accepted than panel/roundtable proposals. We STRONGLY encourage all interested participants to form, or become part of, a panel proposal. To assist in the process of forming panels, we have created the Panel/Paper Wanted Board.  If you are looking for a panel to join or a paper presenter for your panel, please review the proposals on the online board. You can also indicate your willingness to volunteer as chair or discussant. You can also post your requests on the new ASEEES Commons (you must be a current ASEEES member to post on the Commons).

Membership Requirement: ALL individual paper and lightning round presentation submitters and panel/roundtable organizers in the US and abroad MUST be ASEEES members in order to submit a proposal. Please review the membership rules for participation. Renew your membership today.

With any inquiries about the convention, please contact Margaret Manges, the convention manager, at  If you need assistance logging into the ASEEES members site or are experiencing other technical difficulties, please contact
