Symposium: "The American Experiment," Hilton Pasadena, CA, 3-5 Aug. 2017
Hope you’re well and enjoyed a Blessed Easter. This is to invite all ASA colleagues to a Symposium on a timely topic, “The American Experiment: A Republic, If You Can Keep It," Hilton Pasadena, California, USA, 3-5 August 2017. Call for Papers/Registration Form attached; also on JIS web: www.jis3.org/symposium2017.
Presenting a paper is not a prerequisite for participation since the focus is on discussion. But, if you wish to present a paper, send a 250-word Abstract by: May 1, 2017, to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Following the conference, fully-developed papers will be considered for publication in the Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies XXX 2018.
JIS Symposium 2017 is sponsored by the Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies: An International Journal of Interdisciplinary and Interfaith Dialogue, a refereed trilingual thematic annual. We prefer papers that endeavor to connect with relevant ideas and articles published in the journal, which seeks synergy, synthesis, and cumulative knowledge–a “WisdomQuest.”
JIS Symposia attract some of the most creative interdisciplinary scholars from all over the world. Our conferences feature an engaging seminar-style format ideal for discussion. Participants enjoy a relaxed collegial atmosphere at a premier conference venue in the heart of Pasadena (within walking distance of famed Old Town). Ease of travel is facilitated by regular shuttle services from LAX to Hilton Pasadena (ca. 45 min. drive). In addition, Southern Cal offers a wonderful vacation and sightseeing. For less expensive lodging, contact: Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau: www.visitpasadena.com. 1-800-307-7977. Please note that there are no travel grants: participants (or their institutions) are expected to pay all expenses, including a modest registration fee. Official Letters of Invitation are sent out upon pre-registration. We’d welcome your participation.
Feel free to share this info. via newsletter, web, listserve, blog, etc. Thank you for your cooperation.
