RULES FOR ROUND TABLE PROPOSALS

Round tables provide a platform for anthropologists from different countries and backgrounds to discuss topics that are important, valid, and relevant to wider anthropological audiences. Please bear in mind that round tables are not “closed” panels – their participants are not supposed to present papers but rather share their knowledge and experience of the particular topic in a form of discussion.

  • Each round table should have 2 co-convenors (round table organisers) linked to institutions from different countries.
  • At least one of the convenors must hold a PhD.
  • A round table proposals should include both the topic and the complete list of discussants. The discussants should be linked to institutions from different countries. It is also suggested that they represent diversity in terms of gender, age, anthropological background etc. Each round table should have minimum 4 and maximum 5 discussants.
  • Convenors cannot submit more than one round table proposal.
  • Round table organisers and discussants will become members of the IUAES in 2019 (the membership fee will be included in the conference fee).
  • Organisers of approved round table must pay their conference fee by 2 April 2019 in order to have their round table included into the Inter-Congress programme.
  • When proposing a round table sponsored by any of the IUAES commissions, please request the commission chairs for round table approval before submitting it. In such a case the commission name must be appended to the title of the proposed round table, e.g. Making Tourism Work for the Poor [Commission on the Anthropology of Tourism].
  • The language for all round tables is English.

 

The criteria for round table proposals approval

The selection of round table proposals is the responsibility of the Inter-Congress’s Scientific Committee. The decision will be based on:

  • compliance with the guidelines (see above)
  • quality of the proposal (particularly the validity of the proposed topic)
  • diversity and experience of the proposed discussants

 

How to submit

  • All submissions must be made via the online form.
  • In the on-line submission form you will be asked to provide:
  1.

Responsibilities of round table organisers

  • Organise and chair the round table.
  • Make sure that the form of the round table is a discussion – participants are not allowed to present papers. While moderating the discussion, round table organizers need to observe that all discussants have equal time to express their opinions.
  • Keep the participants of the round table informed of: date, time, and location; the obligation to register; any late changes and any other information related to round table.
  • Inform the Organising Committee about any changes and discussant withdrawals. In the event that more than one discussant decides to withdraw, the round table organisers are obliged to find a replacement.
