SAANZ 2022 - Call for Panels

The convenors of the SAANZ Annual Conference 2022 – Now What? Reimagining hope, ‘truth’ and equality – are pleased to call for panel submissions.

Panels may take the form of clustered paper presentations, conference streams, PechaKucha, roundtables, lightening presentations, workshops, creative presentations such as poetry, song, etc. The minimum time allocated to a panel is 60 minutes and they must include a minimum of three participants (e.g., 3 x 15 minute papers with 5 minutes for questions).

The call for panel proposals closes on July 10th, 2022 and the review of panel proposals will be completed by July 31st, 2022

Ideally panels will address the conference theme. However, panels that address adjacent sociological themes are very welcome also (click here for potential areas of interest). In addressing a sociological theme or area of research/study panels may be interdisciplinary or disciplinary orientated. The conference convenors, however, reserve the right to include independently submitted presentations into any panel streams in consultation with panel coordinators. All panels will be reviewed and included at the discretion of the conference organising committee.

Please note the 2022 SAANZ Conference is in-person and has NO online presentation component (at this stage). Accordingly, panel participants must register for the conference and present in person (though one presenter can represent a team).

Panel coordinators and presenters with accepted abstracts are required to complete their online registration and pay their conference fees in full by 6th November, 2022 at the latest to ensure their presentations remain in the conference programme. Obviously early-bird registration – which closes on 6th November – is advised from a financial perspective.


Panel Proposal Submissions

Panel proposals must be submitted online via the SAANZ portal – see below. Proposals must include the name(s), institutional affiliations and email contact details of the panel coordinator(s), a panel title, and a 200-word abstract that outlines the panel’s focus and call for participants. At the bottom of your text-based abstract can you, if possible, indicate a guesstimate/number of participants that you anticipate attracting.  

Instructions for formatting submissions can be found here.
