While proposals for individual papers are welcome, applicants are strongly encouraged to collaborate with peers to propose a workshop, roundtable, individual panel or stream of panels that converge on a particular theme. Multi-country or multi-disciplinary representation, as well as gender balance and the inclusion of a combination of junior and senior scholars, is strongly encouraged in all proposals.

The conference will also include a postgraduate workshop on 2 July 2018. Applications for the workshop will close on 30 March. The workshop is open to all postgraduate members of the ASAA. Postgraduates wishing to attend the workshop are strongly encouraged to present at the conference as well.
